METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 2, 2004 GAME:Lee
November 24, 2004
Great Mets-Yankees game. I went to this game and I had great seats (right behind home plate) and it was Steve Trachsel vs. Mike Mussina but the park was invaded by Yankee fans so I was screaming at them for the entire game.
There was a rain delay and some ceremonies and stuff and the game started late and, when the Mets took the field, Bernie Williams and Derek Jeter came up to the on-deck circle and, because I was right there, I got to see Derek Jeter's face up close the day after he dove into the stands at Yankee Stadium against the Red Sox and got all banged up and let me tell you, he looked like an ape.
Anyway, the Mets ended up bashing Mussina, especially Kaz Matsui, who hit 2 homers and Richard Hidalgo, who hit one. The Mets won the game 11-2 and I was so happy the Mets won and we came out of the stadium jumping up and down and taunting all the Yankee fans.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
