I always think of the great fireworks game from 1985 when I think of Juky 5th. Sure the game started on July 4th and lots of people brought this up yesterday, but I want to sleep in this morning so here’s a generic pre-post.
July 4, 1985 — Braves-Mets July 4th marathon game (fireworks at 4 a.m. ET). Rick Camp kept the Braves alive with his two-out 18th-inning homer and then allowed the Mets to end this marathon contest with five runs in the 19th inning. After this twice rain-delayed game concluded at 3:55 a.m. ET, some Atlanta citizens were awoke by the Independence Day fireworks display.
