METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 4, 1998 GAME:Bobby
October 13, 2005
When I was only 6 years old, I distinctly remember being at the game on Mike Piazza's birthday in which he hit a towering home run into the left field bleachers. As a small child, a home run was an amazing thing to see. I will remember this day for my entire life. Thanks for the memories, Mike.

I remember watching this game but only the last few innings because we had just come back from the 2nd night of my mother's wake (She was buried the next day). It was Piazza's 30th birthday and after the booing he had to put up with, it was sweet validation that he would be a Met in 1999. Looking at the boxscore just now is a treat in itself with the Braves having Ozzie Guillen (Current WS champion manager) lead off and play SS and a then unknown "inbred" named John Rocker pitching a scoreless 8th on the mound in his "favorite" ballpark. It was a classic Glavine vs Leiter matchup. One more thing, if the new SNY channel shows Mets classic games, lets hope they put this one on down the road.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
