METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 1, 1962 GAME:Ed K
February 13, 2012
This was the first of three straight game in which Frank Thomas hit two homers in each game. He sure loved hitting in the Polo Grounds.
The story Thomas tells is that after one of the homers during these three games, he returned to the dugout and Casey asked about the new yellow glasses he was wearing. Thomas said that the trainer had given them to him. Casey said to tell the trainer to buy a gross of them.
Of course, the Mets lost all three games.

This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 12 years old when my parents took me to the Polo Grounds and bought me my first yearbook which I still have today. You know,the one with the baby on the cover and Miss Rheingold on the back cover. What I remembered most about this game was Frank Thomas hitting those two home runs and I remembered the final score, but to actually see the box score at this site was a real thrill. This is my first visit to this site and have added it to my favorites. Life Long Mets fan from the beginning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
