METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 19, 2004 GAME:Howard
October 27, 2004
A bittersweet day for Mets fans: they sweep a doubleheader from the Rockies, however in the second game the Rockies backup catcher (Closser?) takes out poor Joe McEwing at secondbase in an attempt to breakup a double play. The slide looked dirty, as the catcher clearly overslid the bag and seemed to be aiming for Joey Mac. McEwing ended up heaped in a painful pile - suffering a broken leg and ending his season. Strangely enough, the very next inning, Braden Looper beans Closser in the leg on the first pitch of his at bat. . . and Looper is given the ol' heave-ho from the ump. . . A great game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
