'Stranger Things': Season 3 might just revisit the legendary Mets vs Braves game of July 4, 1985

That game had quite a number of instances that could be well used on the show but in order to find that out we still have three more months to go.

                            'Stranger Things': Season 3 might just revisit the legendary Mets vs Braves game of July 4, 1985

Things are about to get very strange on Season 3 of 'Stranger Things', and let's just say, the Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross Duffer) might have just left behind the biggest clue of the upcoming season. Starring Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Noah Schnapp (Will), and Sadie Sink (Max), 'Stranger Things' tells you the story of an alternate dimension in an extremely authentic '80s style. While the previous two seasons, touched upon the gloomy view of an '80s Hawkins, Season 3 is bringing everything that had defined the decade. 

However, among all the clues that the creators have left us with, it is strange that until now no one spoke about that date which was being highlighted on the trailer of the release date. With the ball dropping to welcome the year 1985, the trailer gives us a glimpse of the date July 4, 1985. We all know what happened on that day, the legendary showdown between Mets and Braves had shocked almost everyone who was there watching that game that day. In case, you have been living under the rock and have no clue what we are talking about, just know this game was never supposed to happen. After a delay of almost two hours due to incessant pouring, the field at Fulton County Stadium was nothing more than a swamp. Rings a bell? 

A stadium filled with water could only mean, we might just see Eleven trying to slip herself into the Upside-Down, the way she had done in Season 1. Also, Mets backup catcher to Carter, Ronn Reynolds never made it to the game since Carter totally ripped it off without taking a single break. Reynolds left the Mets after the 1985 season and retired in 1990 as a member of the Padres and with a career average of 188. Reynolds' story might just indicate towards Will who had disappeared for almost the whole of Season 1, and whose return in Season 2 was accompanied by a series of traumatic experiences making Will ultimately succumb to the powers of the Demogorgon.

If none of this convinces you, let's just stick to the idea that baseball is a game played by 11 players in a single team, and while our main team might just consist of six characters, considering the ones who have been serving as helping hands to these kids, there are in total 11 main characters in 'Stranger Things'. Maybe, the hypothesis is way too far beyond the line but considering the fireworks which we are pretty sure aren't just the result of a random impulse, probably the game of Mets vs Braves will play a big role in the upcoming season of the Netflix show. 'Stranger Things' Season 3 is set to arrive on Netflix on July 4, 2019, and let's hope we get to see a glimpse of that legendary game which changed baseball forever.
