METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 12, 1963 GAME:

If I am not mistaken this game on September 12, 1963 was the last game the Giants played at their former home ballpark the Polo Grounds. A great trick question is when did the Giants play their last game at the Polo Grounds? If you answer September 29, 1957 you would be wrong.

I am fairly certain that this was DUKE SNIDER NIGHT. It was delayed a bit because of the rain and there was a full array of former Dodger heroes in attendance, including Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella

I am fairly certain because Marichal pitched and hit a homer and it was one-sided. A couple of years ago I asked Juan Marichal if he remembered hitting a home run in the Polo Grounds, he smiled and knew that it was off "Stallard, I hit it pretty good, too."

My father took us to this game and it was a real treat - he bought us among other things Mr. Met loose leaf notebooks.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
