METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 23, 1997 GAME:Dan the Man
February 15, 2011
This happened to be Irish night at Shea and everyone got green Met hats which I still have to this day. I was 13 and went with my father and some of his friends. I remember this being an enjoyable game and Todd Hundley hit an opposite field grand slam en route to a Mets victory. Looking back 1997 was one of the few years in my lifetime when the season ended and I was satisfied. (The Mets went 88-74 that year.) They did better than I expected and it just seems every season since then they either just were bad, collapsed down the stretch (e.g 1998, 2007, 2008) or had an excruciating playoff loss.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
