METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 1, 1995 GAME:Ed K
October 25, 2004
Mets pulled this season finale out in Shea in 11 innings. The win pulled the Mets into a second place tie in the NL East. Of course, they were 21 games behind the Braves and 6 games under .500. But considering that they were more than 20 games under .500 in early August and that Izzy pitched 8 great innings in this game to finish his half season in the rotation with a 9-2 record, and Met fans had some hope for the future. Sadly, they did not continue their improvement in 1996 and Izzy never panned out with the Mets. It wasn't until 1997 with Bobby V at the helm that things finally turned around.

Terrific game on a beautiful afternoon. We went without tickets planning to buy them at the park, but a man saw me on line with my two year old son and handed me tickets (field level box seats!) and wouldn't take any money. The only problem for us that day was that there was no food being sold because it was the last game of a long season and even the vendors had given up.

I remember this one well. A beautiful afternoon to end the season. Izzy continued his great pitching and the Mets put a nice touch on the end of their season. It's forgotten now but the 95 Mets were actually a decent team, especially in the second half.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
