METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 8, 2009 GAME:Eric From S.I.
January 30, 2012
Ok, first, this is the behind-the-back play by Daniel Murphy. Mark Loretta hits a shot down the first base line that hits the bag and bounces high in the air. Murph runs over to it, picks it up and no-looks a flip behind the back to Bobby Parnell covering first to nab Loretta! OH WHAT A PLAY!
However, for my sons and I, the most memorable moment is when Troncoso of The Dodgers flipped a ball up to us in the first row in left field, which my 7-year-old son caught in his glove. PRICELESS! At first, my son had a Manny Ramirez BP homer just hit off his glove thanks to another ADULT interfering...OH SO CLOSE. But, all in all, having Troncoso flip one to him after seeing this happen is a moment we'll most likely NEVER forget!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
