METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 4, 1999 GAME:Lee Devereaux
March 5, 2006
I was at this game. It was an ungodly hot day. Before the game it was photo day and fans could walk on the field and take pictures of the players. I had waited my entire life to get on the field. I was dehydrated and probably was borderline heat stroke...I got sick on the line (I was able to get away from the crowd, much to their delight). I got back in the line and stepped onto the field. I got to take 1 picture and nearly got sick in centerfield.
The game was really great. It was a night game, but it was still so hot, 1st aid staff was passing out ice packs to fans. The Mets were losing to the Braves but came back against John Smoltz (I hate this man since the brawl w/ John Cangelosi in '94). Mets won. Ha Ha. I had horrible sunburn for weeks and couldn't eat for 3 days. But it was worth it.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
