METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 20, 1970 GAME:DAVE SISTARO
June 17, 2003
This was my 1st game ever. My dad took me and we had upper deck seats. I remember Oscar Gamble dropping a fly ball and almost dropping another which was the last out of the game. I'm trying to find a boxscore of this game. I was 7 years old.

Dave, the boxscore and play-by-play for the game are on www.retrosheet.org. Please e-mail me if you need help.
Gamble dropped a fly ball hit by Al Weis in the bottom of the fifth with two outs and Ron Swoboda on first base. Swoboda came around to score the only Mets run of the game.
The last out of the game is listed as "Swoboda lined to Browne." Byron Browne was playing RF in the game while Oscar Gamble played center. Cleon Jones made the second out of the ninth inning by flying to Gamble, so it could have been the second out you are thinking of, unless it was Browne instead of Gamble who almost dropped the ball.
You have a great memory! Thanks for sharing!
