METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 12, 1962 GAME:Bob P

Mets relief pitcher Craig Anderson won the second game of this doubleheader after also winning game one. That improved Craig's record to 3-1. Unfortunately, Craig lost his next 16 decisions in 1962, then two more in 1963 and one more in 1964. He never won another game in the majors after today.

I was there. Two ninth-inning victories, the first against Spahn, and the second on an opposite field homer by Hodges; I have a clear memory of watching from the upper deck out beyond the right field foul pole, the soft fly ball coming downward just inside the pole, fair, and into the first row of seats in the lower deck. Braves manager Bobby Bragan tore the clubhouse apart after the game; two ninth-inning losses to the Mets could do that.
I'm not the first to point out that when you win just 40 games in a season, each victory is memorable, but these surely were.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
