METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 4, 1964 GAME:Steve Tilders
September 26, 2013
Well I really cannot comment on my first Met game ever, so I will comment on this game. My first game was on June 3, 1964, the day before. As an excited 7 year old, I went to the brand spanking new Shea Stadium with my father, grandfather, and uncle. We sat in the box seats, you know...the yellow ones, the ones that cost $3.50 per ticket behind the dugout. I got to see the warmups and recall seeing Rusty Staub, Jimmy Wynn, and yes Jerry Grote from the Houston Colt 45s. Well the rains came in the third inning and the game was rained out, along with all the records of the day. Despite eating 3 Hot Dogs and getting sick on the way home, it was a great moment in my young life!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
