METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 29, 1996 GAME:Anthony
December 22, 2008
I remember this game quite well. I was in junior high. My mom took my two good friends and I. Both loved to rag on me about the Mets; one of them was a big Yanks' fan at the time and now, ironically, is a Met lover who hates the Yanks. As I remember, we got there around the third inning. Nothing about the game excited me being that they had already clinched a 90-loss season. We stayed after the game and went near the Mets' dugout so we could try to catch any of the various items that the players traditionally throw into the stands after the last game. One of my friends was lucky to catch a batting glove. Other than that, a depressing end to a very depressing stretch of six seasons. Of course, we all know what the Yanks' did that October.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
