METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 10, 1963 GAME:
March 17, 2004
This is the game when the three Alou brothers, Matty, Felipe and Jesus, played in the same game for the first time. They all batted consecutively in the eighth inning.
Felipe had been with the Giants for several years and Matty and Jesus would be for several additional years, but San Francisco broke up the family soon after this game, dealing Felipe to Milwaukee. All told, the Alou's combined 5,194 hits, 269 home runs, 294 stolen bases, 2,223 runs and 1,656 RBIs.
Carl Willey goes the distance for the CG win, his 9th of the season in 21 decisions.
