METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 1966 GAME:Stan
August 11, 2001
I remember this game was like it was yesterday! It was the first game that I ever attended. My dad took me. I was 10 years old, and a huge Ron Hunt fan. I'll never forget how huge Shea looked, and how green the grass was, and how white the ball looked. The only disappointment of the day was that Hunt didn't play. Chuck Hiller played second that day. The Giants pitched 20 game winner Gaylord Perry, but Ribant outdueled him. (From then on, he became my second favorite Met!) It was quite a thrill that day...not only did I get to see my Mets win, but got to see 3 future HOFer's for the Giants. Perry, Mays, and McCovey! I'll never forget it!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
