METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 24, 1969 GAME:Tim
July 2, 2011
This was the first game of a twi-night doubleheader and also the first major league game I ever saw, just about one month before my seventh birthday.
My father and I drove down from Connecticut, before we left he told my mother that we'd stay for the first game, and then if I was tired we'd leave. For years afterward he loved to tell the story of how when the first game ended he asked me if I wanted to go home and I said "no". He then proceeded to ask me the same question after every inning of the SECOND game, and I kept saying "no". So we stayed for both games!
I remember nothing about the games themselves except that the Mets won both, it was nice to be able to look at the scorecards here and get the details. This is a great website.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
