I was at this game. Richie Allen hit three home runs all to different fields in an awsome display of power! I got a hat because it was fan appreciation day!

I was 6 years old, a Phillies fan and Richie Allen was my favorite player. Richie Allen hit 3 consecutive home runs including a grand slam with 2 out in the 9th inning. He drove in 7 runs in the Phillies 10-3 win. It was the only game I ever saw him play in person, and it was the only game in his career where he hit 3 home runs.

I was sitting behind 3rd base about 25 rows up when I saw Richie Allen hit 3 consecutive home runs, including a grand slam off of Ron Taylor, who had just entered the game. The ball went about halfway up the light pole in left center field. It was the longest home run I've ever seen at Shea in the 41 years I've been going there! The crowd was absolutely stunned! We were actually applauding Allen's effort as he was rounding 3rd base.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
