METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 14, 1969 GAME:Joe Anthony

This was a frustrating loss for the Mets. Bill Hands was dominating for the Cubs. My most vivid memory of the game is Ken Boswell's at-bat leading off the top of the eighth inning. He hit a hard grounder that bounced off Ron Santo's glove and a few feet into foul territory. Boswell should have stayed at first base but tried to get to second on the play. He was easily thrown out by Santo. That was the Mets' last scoring opportunity.

At Wrigley, the Cubs top the Mets 1–0 to give Bill Hands (11–7) the win over Tom Seaver (14– 4). Billy Williams singles home the winner, boosting the Cubs lead to five 1/2 games. After the last out, Ron Santo jumps up and clicks his heels, igniting a roar from the crowd. The Mets think it's bush.
How is it that this premier third sacker is NOT in the HOF? Along with Gil Hodges, a blatant ommission.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
