METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 3, 1999 GAME:MikeA137
October 20, 2004
My favorite memory of this game was when Hershiser attempted to "fake out" the runner on second when out of nowhere he throws the ball in between second and third. Ordonez was shocked because he didn't expect it. The runner moved up. Thankfully our lead was enough to where it really didn't hurt, but it was soooo funny to see professional veteran like Hershiser do something so out of the norm. It looked like it would become a classic blooper. It is hard to explain it and give it justice unless you saw it yourself, but it was just a small example of just how lovable the '99 Mets were. They were a winning team, but they still made their share of mistakes, but had fun about it too. It didn't get to them and they still won the game handilly. Great memory from 1999 as there were many more from that awesome season.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
