METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 6, 1968 GAME:Michael Frisella
January 25, 2004
I wasn't there, but I wanted to share a memory of my Mother, which I discovered in an old book. My dad and her went to the game. Seaver pitched great, but lost the game. Afterwards, my family went to try and find a relative on the team, Danny Frisella. According to the first Met they asked, Danny hadn't made the trip. This Met turned out to be Tom Seaver. My mom realized he was the starting pitcher and asked for his autograph. Tom signed, but having lost was down on himself. My mom wrote in her scrapbook under his signature,"he told me 'what do you want mine for, I'm nobody?'"
Of course, even then he was someone, and my mom knew this, so she saved his autograph.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
