I just got some unused tickets on Ebay, and the game listed on the ticket is:
Wed. July 20,1988
7:35
Reds vs. Mets
@ Riverfront

IF you check the baseball almanac there is no game listed for that day. Can anybody help? Here is link to the 88 season info:

They would have played 162 but, according to Sun Deck, Dusty Baker f'd up the weather report that day. :thumbup:

I have to ask, why would you buy tickets for a game 23 years ago?
