METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MARCH 30, 2000 GAME:
July 10, 2000
This was the Mets second of two games in Tokyo to open the 2000 season. Benny Agbayani, who was slated to go to Norfolk, was the hero, hitting a game-winning pinch grand slam!

To me, if the Mets didn't take one of the games in Tokyo, their season was over and the game was close but Benny Agbayani pinch hit and hit a game- winning grand slam!

I remember waking up at 5:00 am to watch this game and instead of hot dogs and soft drinks, I had Cheerios and Orange Juice. By the way, SNY showed a replay of this game on Sunday December 30, 2007 at 6:00 am, a nice respite from the constant football and Christmas/New Year's stuff and for the record: Armando Benitez struck out new Bronx Evil manager Joe Gerardi to end the game.

I yelled so loud after that grand slam I woke up my whole block. It was worth waking up early for.

I remember when Benny Agbayani hit his game-winning grand slam and was presented with a samurai helmet after the game. At the time, I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
