METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 1, 2002 GAME:Larry
June 13, 2002
Well, the great Jeromy Burnitz has done it again. Burnitz came to bat with 2 on and 2 out down by 2 in the 9th inning, and just as I suspected Jeromy proceeded to corkscrew himself into the ground as he blasted a shallow fly ball to center to promptly end the game and it was the beginning of a 5 game losing streak. It did get fun in the 7th inning after Piazza struck out, he came to the plate to catch the inning and after 2 pitches got ejected from the game by an incompetant umpire, then Valentine got hot and got himself thrown out. Was great to see 33,000 fans in Miami for the game. I forgot what it was like to see that place almost halfway full. I'm used to seeing a measly 3,000 fans come to ProPlayer to support their team. A good game, though.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
