How Mets, Yankees remember Subway Series classic Matt Franco Game

The Subway Series still had that new car smell, that incredible atmosphere and that October tension.

The city celebrated the second anniversary of the revived Subway Series (Yankees vs. Mets), soaking up every bit of something that had been thought extinct for 40 years.

“People were walking into a dream world,” then-Mets manager Bobby Valentine said last week. “I was living in New York at the time, and walking the streets of New York during an interleague game was like, ‘I’m a jackpot.’ [World Series] “The 2000 game was just so crazy. Every news show covered it, they promoted it on every back cover, even the front page. It was amazing how focused the community was on a regular season game. I thought that was a great thing.”

The Mets hadn’t been to the postseason in more than a decade. The Yankees had won two of the last three titles, winning a record 125 games in 1999. Mariano Rivera had not allowed a run in the last postseason, helping the team maintain its place at the top of the sports world.
