METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 3, 1963 GAME:Joseph Dubin
January 10, 2005
This was the last game I attended at the Polo Grounds. It was the day after Labor Day, a week before school opened. There was a small crowd and we were able to purchase box seat tickets not more ten rows behind the Reds dugout. My friend, a Red fanatic, actually was given a bat used in batting practice by Vada Pinson.
My only recollections of the game, besides the final score, was: 1) Joe Nuxall started for the Reds and was thrown out trying to steal second (probably the only highlight of the game for the Mets) and 2) no matter what the score was, the crowd loudly cheering on Casey's Amazin's with "Let's Go Mets."
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
