The expansion Rockies' first game. I was in the upper deck as a guest of some law firm. Gooden pitched a shutout and Bobby Bonilla went deep once, maybe twice. I'm not sure. We couldn't get a program, though. They sold out two hours before gametime.

The ninth of ten consecutive Opening Days that I personally attended from 1985-1994. Dwight Gooden pitched a gem besting the immortal #1 expansion draft pick David Nied.

This was the first game in Rockies' history. Eric Young was the first batter in their history. But no one claimed the first RBI in Rockies' history that day. Later that season the Mets shut out the Marlins in their first game against Florida. In 1997, the Mets shut out the Yankees and Blue Jays in their first matchups. And in 1998 the Mets blanked Tampa Bay the first time those two teams played.

That's five teams who were shut out by the Mets the first time they played them. I'll bet no other team can top that record.

Dante Bichette hits the 1st homer in Rockies history

I was at this game with my then five-year-old son.

Mike, it's hard to hit a homer when your team gets shut out! Bichette's home run actually came in the next game, April 7, in the 7th inning off Bret Saberhagen.

Sat in the upper deck for this one, the first regular season game for the Rockies. They had a moment of silence for Steve Olin & Tim Crews of the Indians who had been killed in the boating accident that injured Bobby Ojeda; I think ex- Jets DE Dennis Byrd threw out the first pitch. (He was injured the previous November with a neck injury that ended his career.) I also remember that there were no programs on sale at all because they were gone, although I did request one by mail which I got a month later! And who was the starting catcher for the Rockies? Current Marlins manager Joe Geraldi.

On the this bright and sunny Rockie innaugural game day, Doc Gooden was truly outstanding. We were there early enough to get programs, as well as pendants welcoming the Rockies to the NL.

I was at the game in the Upper Reserves behind home plate, Section 2, Row M. I had gotten there early to get two programs- one to keep score and one to save. Remember a fan sitting next to me saying I wasn't going to be leaving Shea with both programs if there was a Mets no-hitter. With the Mets history, thank God that never happened as Andres Galarraga got the first Rockie hit in their history! The Rockies needed 4 more days to get their first regular season victory!

I was at this one. It was so early in the season, and things looked promising at this juncture. Saberhagen dominated the expansion Rockies and everyone chipped in on offense. Little did Met fans know we were mere months away from golfing accidents in the clubhouse, bleach spraying, tossed firecrackers, and being shown "The Bronx."

The Rockies, who had not yet played a regular season game at batter-friendly Coors Field, came into Shea for a season-opening two game series, and managed a total of one run and six hits in 18 innings.

I was at this game as well. It was a weekday day game and recall the weather was very nice. I believe fans received an "Inaugural Series" pin. We sat in the company box seats, and still remember the section, 92K.

This was the first-ever regular-season game at Coors Field. Rico Brogna of the Mets hit the first home run in the history of Coors Field in the fourth inning off Bill Swift. Todd Hundley hit a grand slam in the sixth inning. However, the Rockies won the game 11-9 on Dante Bichette's three-run home run off Mike Remlinger in the bottom of the fourteenth inning.

I was a graduate student at Colorado State University at the time, and I attended the game at Coors Field with a fellow graduate student. The thing that sticks out in my mind about the game is the two errors made by Rey Ordˇ˝ez on a single play.

This was the second game of a day-night doubleheader, and I was driving at night in my SUV in northeastern Minnesota, heading out to Thunder Bay, Ontario. Even though I was in Minnesota, I could hear this game on KOA radio in Denver, which calls itself the "Blowtorch of the Rockies". Eric Young drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Rockies a sweep of the doubleheader.

Mets were stifled by John Thomson, then a rookie, in this game, into the 7th. Piazza came off the bench, Mets were down 3-1, was booed (as was the norm back in these days) for some ungodly reason, with the bases loaded, and he slammed (and I mean SLAMMED) a 3-run 2B to give the Mets the lead. Lenny Harris hit a HR in the 8th to ice a great comeback win.

That Bobby Jones was incredible - he started for both teams in the same game!

Seriously, I remember this game because I was living in Denver at the time and listening to the game while driving in my SUV, and I recall one of the Rockies announcers saying that this was the first time in major league history that two pitchers with the same first and last names started opposing one another in the same game.

I went to this game and it was tied at 2 going into extra innings and then 3 of these 4 hitters got hits in the tenth (i'm not quite sure who): Larry Walker, Dante Bichette, Todd Helton, Vinny Castilla, and then Barry steps up and gets a bases clearing double and the Mets lost 5-2.

This game was the same day of my oldest sister's wedding. She married my now brother-in-law Dennis. Daryl Hamilton hit one of his few homers on the perfect day. A grand slam nonetheless. 1999 was such an awesome Mets season, and summer all together for myself. When Daryl Kile faced the Mets, I always was nervous because of his career numbers against them. He shut them down for the first four innings, and then the Mets finally got to him, highlighted by Daryl Hamilton's grand slam. Also, it was one of many good outings for Masato Yoshii that year. I went into the wedding a happy guy. That night was soooo awesome, I drank so much. I remember my grandma from my dad's side blamed my other sister and her friends for giving me the drinks! I was only a 17-year old high school junior. Dennis, the guy my sister married, is also a big Mets fan. So, he fits perfectly with my family.

Whoooooooo, what a game! Bordick, Zeile, Ventura, and someone else, I forget who, launched homers against the Rox. I was excited to see Hampton but he got hurt and Wendell came in and threw I think 5 innings of long relief for the win.

Mets2Moon
May 3, 2005

Zeile, Agbayani, Ventura and Bordick went deep for the Mets this afternoon. The Mets just lit up Masato Yoshii this game. Hampton left with an injury after 3, but Wendell came in and pitched great. Even nailed a single in the 5th in a rare AB, but then he got greedy and tried to stretch it into a double. He was promptly and easily thrown out at second. He took a faceful of dirt with his slide as well. The Mets allowed the Rockies 2 runs to score when they let a Hollandsworth double kick all the way around the infield. Didn't matter. The game was out of reach by then.

Jay Payton tore his hamstring running to first base in this game. He wasn't the most amazing player, but needed in the Mets thin outfield. Mets were starting to even out after a bad start, and this set them back for a while.

As soon as I heard that my sister and brother-in- law would be moving to Colorado and would be near Denver, I immediately planned my first visit to coincide with the Mets' visit. He knew how much I wanted to go to a game and got the tickets for us to go. Coors Field was a wonderful experience. The Rockies fans were great. The game itself was forgettable for the Mets, Mike Hampton pitching a gem and the 6-0 loss. I had bittersweet memories of the previous year when Hampton pitched the Mets into the World Series, and I'm sure any Met fan who was there felt the same (unless they were cursing Hampton for not signing with the Mets). A year or so later my sister and brother-in-law moved, and I never got back to Coors Field.

Nice to have seen the Mets tear up Mike Hampton in the first inning in his return to Shea. A bright spot in a very disappointing season.

My first ever baseball game and first (and as yet) only visit to Shea. I live in Sheffield, UK and was in New York for a month after finishing University and decided to go to a game. I knew it had to be the Mets and not the flash Yankees.

I wasn't 100% certain of the rules but the Mets first inning yielded 4 runs and ended in a 5-2 victory.

A great night. I hope I can return before the move to the new stadium. I distinctly remember chants of 'Yankees suck' on my way out of the stadium.

A great night topped off with a Piazza homer...a great night.

Piazza's home run was estimated to have traveled 463 feet, crashing off the center field camera stand. Take that, Mike Hampton!

Just when you thought the Mets bats MIGHT have actually started to wake up and the pitching settling down and going for a 4-game win streak, the Mets promptly go out and blow a 7-1 lead in the last 2 innings... unbelievable. just unbelievable. And to think they didn't even need the help of Benitez to blow this one! Can it get any worse? Oh wait, it can! The Mets go out the next day and get a couple in the top of the first and proceed to lose that one as well. When will it end?

Art, Art, Art. I know you managed in the AL, but everyone knows that a 7-run lead in Colorado is like having a 1 run lead at Shea. When you are in last place in the NL East and have the chance to put together a 4 game winning streak-YOU DO NOT DECIDE TO "GIVE THE KIDS IN THE BULLPEN SOME WORK" What is wrong with you? I went to bed that night and it was 7-0 in the 7th inning and I figured what could go wrong? When I woke up the next morning and saw the Mets lost 9-8 because of stupidity I couldn't believe it. Why didn't you leave Glavine in the game? He put some runners on base? So what? He probably would have won 7-2 or 7-4 and gotten a complete game.

I'm starting to think your winning record in Oakland was strickly because of the players you had and not because of your savvy managing skills. First you cause a Media Blitzkrieg in the locker room the other night on Piazza without talking to him beforehand (not that moving to first base was a surprise to him but you could have let him know you were going public with the idea) and now this.

I love this game.It was Irish night and the day after the Great Blackout of 2003. I was a little nervous because not only Glavine was pitching, but would they get the game in. They did and I got to see Jose Reyes hit a line drive into the left field bullpen. I also got to see Mike Piazza for the 6th year in a row.

Batting practice. That's what this game was. Sheer batting practice. The Mets banged out five doubles in this one. This also was the climax to a mini hot streak that began when the Mets wreaked havoc on the Giants. Perhaps it's a sign of things to come.

This was the game where Steve Trachsel should have had a no-hitter. Trachsel was pitching a gem and had a perfect game going. In the 6th inning, someone tried to bunt to break up the perfect game, but to no avail. The next guy up was the opposing pitcher, some Taiwanese guy. He hit a double over Timo's head (which he should've caught). What made me mad, was that where I was sitting there were more people cheering the pitcher than Trachsel. I was in the upper deck, which was full of Taiwanse people from Flushing (who knew nothing about baseball). In the 9th inning, someone else got on base. It was initially ruled an infield hit, but after the game changed to an error. Trachsel ended up with a complete game one hitter. It was an enjoyable afternoon game, with a Mike Piazza home run. One of my more enjoyable games at Shea for a while. You know, I don't think the Mets will ever get a no-hitter. It's kind of like Boston or Chicago winning the World Series. And now with Bob Murphy retired, I wouldn't want anyone else to call the first Mets no-hitter!

This was my 2 kids' first Mets game. It was also my daughter's birthday, and I wrote in to have her name put up on the scoreboard during the birthday announcements. It was a fabulous day, weather-wise and baseball-wise. We almost saw the first Mets no-hitter. I really wanted it more for them than for anything. I could have told them one day down the road that they saw a piece of history.

Vance Wilson finally gets some real playing time and proves that he should be the regular catcher. Vance goes 3 for 5 with two doubles, a single and drives in 2 RBI, besides providing the usual outstanding defense.

A bittersweet day for Mets fans: they sweep a doubleheader from the Rockies, however in the second game the Rockies backup catcher (Closser?) takes out poor Joe McEwing at secondbase in an attempt to breakup a double play. The slide looked dirty, as the catcher clearly overslid the bag and seemed to be aiming for Joey Mac. McEwing ended up heaped in a painful pile - suffering a broken leg and ending his season. Strangely enough, the very next inning, Braden Looper beans Closser in the leg on the first pitch of his at bat. . . and Looper is given the ol' heave-ho from the ump. . . A great game.

One errant throw was the difference between a 3-1 Mets win and what turned out to be a 4-3 loss. Why is Reyes, with two out, no one on base and the gangly Eric Byrnes at bat, doing his Nolan Ryan impersonation and gunning the ball 100mph to Woodward? I'm sorry, but the error should have gone to Jose; the throw was low and too fast to handle.

The blame, however, should not totally fall solely on Jose. Ishii should've reached down inside for something extra to get that third out. Instead, he threw fat fastballs and that contributed to the Mets' loss.

I felt bad for Woodward. Not only did he receive an error he didn't deserve, he also hit two seeds that were caught by the Rockies' shortstop. Add to the fact that I scored this game and you wind up with a pretty icky night.

I wish I had gone to this game (I went Friday Night). But it was the most exciting late-season games in recent memory. Piazza's last Mets HR, David Wright's 2 dingers. He's the best 3rd Baseman in the Big Apple. Take that Mr. Hamburger Helper Hands/Texas Hold 'em Rodriguez! Glavine goes the distance with a 11 strikeout/2 hitter complete game. I cannot wait for 2006 and the promise it brings for better days ahead!

A sad ending to a sad season. Willie had Piazza batting cleanup because he knew it was gonna be Mike's last game as a Met. Hey, at least he didn't strike out. Piazza batted three times and grounded out to the left side each time, then waved his hat and left the game. Throughout the game they were showing all of Piazza's highlights up on the scoreboard and it feels like it wasn't that long ago when Piazza was hitting 40 homers and 120 rbis and hitting those dramatic shots of Trevor Hoffman, Roger Clemens, and Kevin Brown. But I guess 5 years is a pretty long time. The rest of the game didn't really seem to matter, the Rockies scored twice in the first and then Jacobs and Diaz went back-to-back in the second and it felt like they had a chance, but then they lost 11-3. I guess everyone was just hoping Piazza would go out with a bang like Zeile did the year before when he ended his career with a home run, but Piazza couldn't even get the ball out of the infield.

Historical last game of the 2005 season being Mike Piazza's last game as a Met and the last Mets game broadcast on Fox Sports Net as the organization would be starting up SNY in March of 2006. I always wished that I went to this game but wound up watching on TV instead.

This was the first of three consecutive Mets games I attended with my friend Mindy. She had the idea of going to an entire three-game series after the first two Mets games we saw were losers (Brewers in '04; Atlanta the next year). "They can't possibly lose three games, right?" she reasoned. Even though we got to see the Mets win a game in person against Florida that April, I thought that the idea of having three chances to win one would be moot. But she insisted on doing it and that it would be fun. Who am I to turn a lady down?

We sat in loge and, unfortunately, my "favorite" pitcher Steve Trachsel was on the mound. That piece of rotten prune danish never won whenever I saw him pitch in person... until that night.

Endy Chavez became Mindy's favorite Met thanks to a bomb of a home run. I had just finished explaining to her that with a runner on first, Chavez would lay down a bunt to put the runner in scoring position when Chavez unloaded. Some bunt.

Mindy also took an immediate dislike of the Rockies players because they all had first names that sounded like they all sang for N'Sync or some other boy band (i.e., "Cory" Sullivan; "Garret" Atkins; "Jamey" Carroll). She can boo opponents with the best of them.

One down, two to go.

This is the first game I ever went. I was 10 years old. I remember I was so excited because it was the first year I started to really pay attention to Mets baseball. I don't remember much but the one vivid memory I had was Endy Chavez pulled a home run over the right field fence. He was the last person I expected to hit one. I also believe he caught the last out leaning over the right field fence in foul territory hit by Yorvit Torrealba. I started to like Endy Chavez a lot more after this game.

I just want to say that I have never cried with so much happiness as I did tonight in the 20-year celebration. It brought back so much emotions for me from 1986 to see Lenny, Wally, El Sid, Bobby O, Timmy Teufel, Darryl, Ed Hearn, Jesse Orosco, etc. It is just a shame that the other players couldn't be there. And to top it off the Mets pull out a comeback just like the '86 club would have done. Now all that is left is for this team to make this season just as magical and memorable as 1986!

Shickhaus Franks
September 18, 2006

I've been going to Mets games since 1975 (I'll be 40 in December) and I've been to 4 home openers, 2 playoff games (both in '99), Tom Seaver Day in '88, 1 game vs the Bronx Evils (July 9, 1999), met "Mad Dog" Chris Russo, saw Bob Apodaca get hit in the face with a line drive, Doc's 20th win in '85, but being there on August 19th, 2006 for the '86 Celebration has to top them all!

How ironic that it rained during the ceremony since the '86 Mets got rained out at least 7 or 8 times that year.

I just wished that Doc, Davey, and Ray Knight were there; shame on you WS MVP, you can speak to a bunch of Professor Frink wannabees any night of the year even on Christmas.

Even the '06 Mets got into the spirit by wearing the '86 racing stripe home unis!

But the topping on the cake was when the PA system played the greatest novelty song ever: Jump In The Saddle's "The Curly Shuffle", an ode to the 3 Stooges before the bottom of the 6th, With the Amazins down 4-0, that great song had to jump start them because they tagged the poor Rockies for 6 runs and then added extra spice when Lastings Milledge hit a homer in the 8th and then Billy Wagner put the "Sandman" on Colorado with a 1-2-3 inning! And somewhere Bob Murphy was giving a happy recap up in the great 1050 WHN booth in the sky!

We got to the park at about 3:00. We saw all the 86 Mets players walking just 6 feet away from me into the entrance of Shea. Then in the 6th the Mets staged an 86 Mets like comeback. It was great!

April 3, 2007

The second of the Mets/Colorado games with Mindy found us without baseball cards. Prior to the game, the Mets gave out 1986 commemorative baseball card packs to the first 25,000 people. Unfortunately, we didn't get any when we arrived.

Despite this disappointment, it was great to see the '86 Mets. Mindy liked how Darryl was "styling" in his white getup, while I thought it was cool that Rafael Santana had on a nice shirt and tie underneath his jersey.

The inning when the Mets scored six runs was the only time I lost my temper throughout the entire series. My target was Paul LoDuca, because I felt he could have easily scored from second base on the Matt Holliday error. That point was immediately rendered moot as the Mets made like the baseball conga line from one of those Bugs Bunny cartoons with a combination of hits and walks. Throughout the rally, I kept reminding Mindy how "a well-placed hit would plate (one or two runs) depending on the on-base situation. Mindy couldn't wait for me to shut up (lol)!

There is a happy recap to this game. I did get the cards for myself and Mindy courtesy of the internet. The things I do to make people happy!

Two down, one to go.

I took my two boys to their FIRST ever baseball game this night! A night that all of us will ALWAYS remember. My oldest son Thomas was 5 and my youngest Mark Jr was 4. We got to see the 86 Mets anniversary. A man jumped out of a plane with a parachute onto the field (not Michael Sergio) and they couldn't believe it!

Mark fell asleep on me before the game started and it also rained. When they walked through the tunnel to see their first MLB field I took a video of them. Then someone asked if I wanted a picture and they took a photo of us - it is one of my most wonderful memories.

Five year old Thomas carried my heavy bag to the car as I carried Mark when we left. My little man walking and talking to me about the game at just 5 years old! AWESOME!!

The final game of the series with Mindy featured the Carloses (Beltran and Delgado) going deep and El Duque wowing the crowd with his pitching, hitting (he had a single), and baserunning (he stole third).

Amid this easy Mets win, Mindy informed me that she wasn't wearing any deodorant. In the crush of 30,000 people, how the hell am I going to notice? :) Anyway, I replied "Thank you for sharing" and asked if she noticed that I was wearing the same shirt and jeans throughout the entire series (I always try to wear a light colored shirt and Levi's blue jeans whenever I see a game at Shea). I added that although I wore the same outfit three days straight, I did shower and change my underwear after every game. Always remember: A clean Mets fan is a happy Mets fan!

Following the game, Mindy and I were so spent from attending three Mets games, traveling, eating a ton of ballpark food, and the heat that we went back to our separate abodes and passed out. I can't speak for her, but I was so sick of eating ballpark that all I had to eat that Monday was an avocado sandwich.

We were fortunate that we saw the Mets sweep the Rockies. However, the next time Mindy and I see three games again, we're going to space them out a little.

What an amazing game. I wasn't allowed to watch the game (T.V. turnoff at school) so I snuck on the T.V. only to find out that the Mets were down 1-0. But perfect timing because I saw Damion Easley's HR minutes after I turned it on then I knew the Mets would win so I slept with my radio on and wasn't surprised after Chavez singled on a drag bunt (considering he has great speed).

Took our sons to this one. Finally got to see Pedro pitch in person but he had to leave early with an injury. My final game at Shea. It was a nice run.

What a BRUTAL loss! After Jon Niese pitches 7 strong innings, the bullpen (as always) gives the game away. Bases loaded and reliever Manny Acosta gives a early Christmas gift to ex-Met Melvin Mora for a deflating GRAND SALAMI. At that point, many of the Mets faithful leave Citi Field (As always, I stay until the conclusion) like rats deserting a sinking ship!! Then I get home and turn on SNY and I find out that K-Rod (who should have been in the game in the first place) suddenly decides to become Kimbo Slice and beats up his poor father-in-law. Anyhow, I'm yelling after the game that Rose Nylund aka Jerry Manuel needs to go; demote Minaya to peanut vendor; and that the Wilpons need to get the #$% out of the baseball business and sell the team to Mark Cuban or Donald Trump ASAP!!

A rainy cold night at Citi Field. There was this incredible mist the whole night. You could not see the top of the upper deck because of the mist and fog. Small crowd. Troy Tulowitzki killed us this game with a big HR and another hit.

My friend Rob G got great seats, in the Delta Club area. Saw Wayne Garrett in the Delta Club restaurant. Go Wayne!

Just another loss for the Mets in 2012. McHugh was outstanding. I hope he continues to be while pitching at Citi Field.

Best part of the day was Gabby Douglas throwing out the first pitch. She looks as good in a Mets jersey as she does in a leotard. Well, almost!

I saw this game from the Pepsi Porch along with about 22,000 others getting a tan on a warm summer afternoon. I brought my transistor so I was able to get a little commentary.

McHugh had a sharp curve and a straight fastball. His debut was most impressive. However to give up only 1 run and lose...let's just hope this is not a harbinger of the future.

The Mets wore their 1993 home throwback uniforms to commemorate the anniversary of the Rockies' first game, which had been played at Shea.

In these uniforms, the Mets just had to lose.

This was a make-up game from the bitter cold and snow series back in April. The game-time temp was 93 degrees!

I was at this game with my brother. The announced attendance was 27,000+ but it sounded way louder than that. Almost nobody left before the end of the game because everyone wanted to see Harvey pitch a CG shutout. The liner off his knee was scary for a few moments. I think it's great for the young guys, like Harvey, Wheeler, Flores, Lagares, et al to see what winning in New York can be like.
