METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 1963 GAME:Bill Van Alstyne
April 1, 2004
The first major league game I ever saw; Grover Powell started for the Mets. Duke Carmel hit a 3 run homer in the first inning off Bob Sadowski. Tim Harkness hit one over the roof in right field in the 4th I believe. .Braves tied it on a home run by Roy McMillan off Roger Craig in the 6th or so. .and on and on they played. Larry Bearnarth threw 7 shutout innings in relief. Hank Aaron, in consecutive times at bat in extra innings. .hit doubles down the left field line. .and was tagged out when he overslid 2nd. .Bob Tiefanauer pitched in relief. .and Tim Harkness beat him with his 2nd hr of the day. .a 2 run shot into the upper deck in right. I can still see that ball dropping into the seats. Bearnarth the winner, and I went home happy.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
