METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 27, 2000 GAME:Jared K
October 4, 2005
Ah man, not such a great game to be at for your first ever visit to Shea. It was the tail end of my junior year of high school, and my good buddy and I had a bit of Spring Fever and decided to cut that day and go to this series-ending day game.
It was ridiculously cold that day for a late April afternoon. Glendon Rusch pitched a great game, only to have Mr. Clutch (Armando Benitez) give up the go-ahead run in the 12th to some scrub named Gookie Dawkins. The Mets offense was its usual anemic self that day.
The only other memories of this game I have was Rickey Henderson dogging it down to second in a lame attempt to steal, the crowd calling for Scott Williamson's death when he kept tossing the ball to Sean Casey at 1st 58 times every time a runner got on base during a 12-inning game on a 40 degree day, and letting Griffey have it for not signing with us. (We all saw what a big loss that was!)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
