METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 22, 1997 GAME:James

It was a great game to go to for my 14th Birthday. There was a short rain delay and Corey Lidle made an emergency start in this game. I remember Franco blowing the save, but Carl Everett hit the game running homer in the 10th, and I got to run the bases after the game.

It was just ridiculously hot that day - well over 90 degrees and the sun was blazing. The rain delay came late in the game and was like a gift from God. Everett had three or four game-winning home runs that season.

This was my first Mets game, a month before my sixth birthday. I don't remember much, but I do remember standing on my seat and going crazy when Carl Everett hit that home run! I believe I sat in the Loge behind home plate...excellent precursor to all the great times I would proceed to have at Shea.

This was the first Mets game I ever went to, I was only 6 years old. Brutal heat and then a violent rain delay highlighted an unbelievable first game for me. I remember the Hundley home run and Everett walk off vividly. I've been a huge Met fan ever since. Ordonez and Hundley were my favorite players in the beginning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
