Moments In Time…

There are certain plays that will forever stay etched in you memory. On Saturday night..Omir Santos may have added one to the list of plays or moments that will stay frozen in time for Met fans. Whats great about memories is that it can be passed on from generation to generation thus never allowing them to ever be forgotten or lost to time. Here are some Met wins or plays that stay etched in my memory and hope will bring a smile on a rainy day.

  1. Also Todd Pratt’s Homerun in 1999 to straight away center that for a second no one in Shea knew if Finley caught it to eliminate the DiamondBacks and go on to the NLCS.

  2. These are some of my favorite Mets moments in time too. I’ve got others that go farther back, even as far as ’69 – that my Dad and I still mention from time to time.
    But I don’t think there is any current day Met fan where if you said ‘The Catch’, they wouldn’t know exactly what you are referring to….

  3. The strongest memory I have of all the moments you bring up is the Beltran 16th inning home run, and that’s because I was there. Really close. My brother and I had decided to splurge on 1 Met game that year. We went through various online sources and eventually settled on a pair of tickets in Field Box X1B. We were so close to the action, directly behind home plate, that as the innings mounted and we began to think of the long drive home and work early the next morning, we kept telling each other “we can’t leave, we’ll never have seats this good again.” So we stayed. We saw. We screamed. We jumped. We hugged strangers. And I’ll never forget it.
