METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 13, 2001 GAME:M Fuchs
July 18, 2001
I was sitting in the first row of the upper deck box...It was Italian night and they gave out posters of some Italian Mets. During the later part of the game when the Mets were losing 3-0 some fans in the upper deck by me folded their posters into paper airplanes and threw them off the upper deck to see how dar they can go. The furthest one hit the dugout. there was a pretty decent size crowd in the upper deck and we did the "wave" a couple of times. The moment of the game came in the 9th when Piazza hit home run #300..it was an amazing shot. After he hit the homer I saw many people throw their "airplanes" off the upper deck. My friends and I were cheering like crazy and we wanted a curtain call, sure enough Piazza came out and gave us one. Too bad the game ended 2 mins later witha Mets loss. And then the super fun part-waiting 45 mins to get out of the Shea parking lot!!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
