METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 12, 1963 GAME:
February 15, 2002
my second and last trip to the Polo Grounds...i believe it was family day. I remember Frank Howard hitting a ball completely out of the Polo Grounds to left field

LA catcher Doug Camilli had the only home run of this game as Sandy Koufax threw a three-hit shutout and struck out 13 Mets. Sandy retired the last fourteen batters he faced, striking out seven of them.
Camilli's homer came leading off the second inning.

I spent the whole summer with my family at a place we owned in Monroe, NY. I was a Dodgers fan and remember listening to it on WABC radio. You can now buy a copy of that game on CD. Amazing!

This is the game that I became a Met fan. I was 7 years old. It was my only trip to the Polo Grounds. I'm from Secaucus NJ. My Uncle Joe Olfern took a group of kids from the neighborhood to the game. Thanks Uncle Joe.

I remember Jim Hickman made two errors from third including a throw that missed first base by 45 feet (it seemed!)
