METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 18, 1965 GAME:Fred of Nyack
June 17, 2005
I believe that this an Easter Sunday and the second game of a doubleheader. There was rain in the forecast so my brother and I brought our blue Mr. Met ponchos which depicted Mr. Met smiling, with an open umbrella as it rained. The caption read "WE CAN'T LOSE TODAY!"
It didn't rainout the first game but I do recall play stoppage.
I remember my uncle saying that is unlike Roy McMillan to make errors. (It seems that he made 2 in this game, in the first innning.) At least one of them was throwing.
Swoboda hit a long home run which he talks about in Golenback's book. And then it rained. The box score confirms my memory (7 inning game) of the rain and the next day's sports page read: SENT 'EM HOME WET BUT HAPPY.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
