METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 24, 1968 GAME:Steve Venable
September 11, 2003
I'm trying to determine the date of my first Braves game attended in person in 1968 (Atlanta Stadium) at the age of 9. I'm positive that it was against the Mets and I'm reasonably certain that Joe Torre hit a HR for the Braves. The final score of 4-2 Braves also sounds familiar. 5-24-68 was a Friday, which would work because I was in school at the time and probably wouldn't have attended a game with school the next day. There was also a 4-2 Braves win on 7-25-68, but this game was on a Thursday, and although I was out of school for the summer, my parents would have had to work the next day, so this date is less likely. I tried to find a box score of these games on-line, with no luck.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
