METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 31, 2003 GAME:Dan the Man
November 28, 2014
I'm 27 now and I usually go to 1-5 Met games a year since 1992. I introduce myself that way because this game was the worst game I've ever been in attendance of. Besides losing to the Phillies, the Mets only got 2 hits that day and I believe had 0 hits until the 7th inning. I can't even remember them scoring a run. Then on the last play of the game Reyes injured himself sliding to 2nd base and if I remember right was out for the year. Like I said I'm 27 now and only have vague rememberences of Torborg, but I believe the Art Howe era was as bad as it got in my lifetime. There were just so many games like this under Howe where this team couldn't even hide the fact they didn't care about winning.

This was my first Mets game, I was nine. I can remember the first time walking into Shea and being amazed. I also met Al Leiter and Jason Phillips. The sad part was this is where Jose Reyes' rookie season came to an end with the injury at the end of the game.

Of all the Mets games I've gone to in my life this one was the absolute worst! The Mets didn't even get their first hit until the 7th inning in this one. They just flat out gave up that year.
But what makes me laugh about the 2003 Mets is despite how bad they were they had 3 future hall-of-famers on that team: Roberto Alomar, Tom Glavine, and Mike Piazza. (He's got to make it one of these days!)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
