View Full Version : Anyone remember this NY sports moment?

I was just a kid when it happened, but I still remember it. Now's a good time to post it with the MLB playoffs starting (also like '76, with the Yanks playing and the Mets on the golf course)



This is a scene you will likely never see in NY sports again, especially after 9/11. Almost makes me wish I was back in the 70's (except for listening to Cosell)

I was in right field, near the foul pole. In the 8th inning, some fool began climbing it. As cops tried to coax him down, one of my friends became preoccupied with him, fearing he would fall. I told him he'd better pay attention to the game; KC had two men on, with Brett up.

As he yelled at the cops to do something, the ball sailed over the wall to our right. Three run homer, score tied. Stunned, he yelled at the fool to jump.

I guess it is safe to say that Foul Boy was not one of the people on the field then?
