Jack Hamilton pitches a one-hit shutout in this game at St. Louis. The only hit was a two-strike bunt single by Cardinals pitcher (and future Met) Ray Sadecki in the third inning.

Sadecki was the losing pitcher and lone Cardinal to get a hit, if you call that bunt a hit!
Was traded for Orlando Cepeda a few days later. This was the last Met game at Sportsman Park and Sadecki's last game as a Cardinal.

I have great memories of this game. This was a very early season night game on a chilly evening in St. Louis. I remember Bob Murphy commenting that whereas most of the players had a sweatshirt under the uniform, Jack Hamilton wore just the uniform shirt. This was in the days before the obnoxious center field TV camera, and Hamilton's stuff looked fabulous from behind the plate. The fact that it was the Mets' last game in Sportsman Park added to the historic significance.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
