METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 30, 1966 GAME:
March 28, 2004
Jack Fisher of the Mets pitched a complete game win but only had two plate appearances! This isn't a trick; the Mets beat Larry Dierker in the bottom of the ninth when Ron Hunt, batting for eighth place batter Danny Napoleon, singled to end the game with the Mets having a total of 26 batters.
Fat Jack finished the year at 11-14 with a decent ERA of 3.68 besting 20 year old hardballer Larry Dierker.

Dierker had a perfect game going into the ninth. You can look it up.

This was the best pitched game I ever attended. Dierker was perfect starting the ninth. Bressoud led off with a sinking liner to left which could have been safely played as a single, but with a perfect game on the line Left Fielder Lee Maye tried for a diving catch and the ball got past him for an extra base. A wild pitch and a soft liner that touched the top of the glove of a leaping infielder and just dropped behind him got the winning run home.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
