October 19, 2011
My late father took me and two buddies (one who was a Cubs fan) to this game as a birthday present since it was my 18th birthday! I had my first legal drink at Shea Stadium in the Diamond Club. (In those days the legal age in NY was 18.) We sat in the old RCA box seats that were several rows back from third base. I remember Karl the Sign Man sitting a few rows in front of us. I went up to him before the game and had him autograph my game program! It was almost better than getting a player's autograph! I do recall the Mets winning the game, but I always thought the score was 2-1. This website corrected that error! This is a cool website! I'll be sure to save as a favorite!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
