There's an article in the Ledger today about Steve Henderson (hitting coach of The Rays) and it mentions…
.."What has come to be called The Steve Henderson game.". Apparently Steve hit a home run and the Mets won, and as the article highlights this was exciting because it moved the Mets within one game of .500 and 6 of the Expos.
I'm pretty hip to the "Lee Mazzilli Mets" years but I don't recall this at all and have never heard of "The Steve Henderson Game.". Anyone?
I do vaguely remember being excited one year that they were playing .400 ball (that's a four) but that was the second half of the split 1981 season.
You kids have no idea how awful this franchise was, and how great that made 1984. I still hate the Cubs. Look it up youngins.
