I attended a doubleheader at the Phillies Connie Mack Stadium 6/14/64. With all that must have gone on, I strangely have only one memory of the whole twin bill - Amado Samuel punching a single into RF in game 2. I can still picture his jammed looping uppercut swing and the precise arc of the ball as it softly dropped in. Looking the game up on this site, I don't even remember at all the Jim Hickman homer that soon followed to give the Mets a rally in the 7th, though they lost 4-2.

Weird, how memory can be so selective and particular. I think it was because I didn't think # 8 hitter Amado would hit at all, and because I thought Amado was a neat name.

He is after all the best player named Amado who ever played in the Majors. Just like Andruw Jones is the best Andruw ever. And he seems to be the most well liked player ever for the Mets surnamed Samuel.

Actually I have one other memory, and only this one -Al Jackson warming up for his start, near the dugout those days. I though - man - is he little!

This is the season the Phillies blew the pennant in the most infamous collapse in MLB history (that 6 1/2 game lead with 12 to go - 10 losses in a row thing). It was hardly the fault of the Mets, who gave the Phillies both games of this doubleheader, and 15 of the 18 games for the season, including a perfect game by Jim Bunning a week after this game.

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.

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!
