METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 7, 2006 GAME:original mets
September 18, 2006
I have been attending major league baseball games since 1953, and only remember seeing one inside the park HR (by Maury Wills at the Polo Grounds on 5/30/62); what I witnessed this night was performed by the most exciting player in the game, our own Jose Reyes. Unlike Wills, Jose may not be the great base stealer, but has shown he is worth his weight in gold. Jeter eat your heart out!

I was fortunate to witness 2 Mets inside the park homers in person, Timo Perez was fast against the Phillies in 2000, but Reyes topped it here. He was across home plate before the ball even hit the cutoff man. You knew that he was going to have it when the ball took the big bounce off the wall.
It was also a great outing from Glavine against the Dodgers which would be matched a month later in the playoffs.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
