METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 12, 1963 GAME:Dan Asnis
January 24, 2003
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.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
