METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 24, 2005 GAME:Kevin
December 28, 2005
I went with my friends and we sat in the absolute nosebleeds of the upper deck in right field in Yankee Stadium. It was one of the worst traffic days in the history of NYC, so we got there in the third inning, just in time for the fireworks (unfortunately we missed our 3 SAC flys courtesy of one Bernie Williams).
The rest of the game was great. Beltran hit a blast and made an unbelievable play in the field to preserve the lead late. The whole atmosphere of the stadium was great, everybody was into it and there were Let's Go Mets cheers popping up everywhere.
I remember seeing Beltran's home run travel under me as I sat in the upper deck, and hearing the groans and cheers signaling where it landed. (And of course the next day, Floyd hit a home run right where I was sitting the previous night)
The Yankees made it exciting in the 9th inning, but Pedro had kept the lead safe. There is no better feeling than beating those damn Yankees in their own house!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
