METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 9, 2001 GAME:Marie
October 21, 2008
As soon as I heard that my sister and brother-in- law would be moving to Colorado and would be near Denver, I immediately planned my first visit to coincide with the Mets' visit. He knew how much I wanted to go to a game and got the tickets for us to go. Coors Field was a wonderful experience. The Rockies fans were great. The game itself was forgettable for the Mets, Mike Hampton pitching a gem and the 6-0 loss. I had bittersweet memories of the previous year when Hampton pitched the Mets into the World Series, and I'm sure any Met fan who was there felt the same (unless they were cursing Hampton for not signing with the Mets). A year or so later my sister and brother-in-law moved, and I never got back to Coors Field.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
