Countdown to Opening Day. Home Opener 2003


2003: Mets vs Cubs
Junior Year of Quinnipiac. Skipped a test w/Dr. Straub and told him I couldn’t take it because I had to go to Mets opening day. He laughed and understood. Went with Amy. IT WAS FREEZING. Listed as 39 degrees but 20 mph winds. The only thing that kept us warm was we were able to have beer legally. We were hoping to watch Sammy Sosa hit his 500th HR, which didn’t happen, but it seemed like everyone else hit one because the final score was 15-2.

Mets Starting Line-up:
R Cedeno CF
R Alomar 2B
C Floyd LF
M Piazza C
M Vaughn 1B
T Wigginton 3B
J Burnitz RF (one of the 1st true 3-outcome players)
R Sanchez SS
T Glavine P (was awful in this game. 3 2/3 innings, 5 earned runs, 8 hits, 4 walks)

Cubs Starting Line-up:
M Grudzielanek SS
A Gonzalez SS
S Sosa RF
M Alou LF
H Choi 1B
M Bellhorn 3B
C Patterson CF (7 rbis; maybe that's why Dusty Baker still loves him)
D Miller C
K Wood P (wasn't special, 5+ innings, 5 ks)
