METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 3, 1966 GAME:William Ortenberg
August 12, 2003
This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 8 years old. I'd love to see a box score to confirm my 37-year old memories, but I recall Bob Shaw started and took a tumble at some point in the game that dirtied his uniform. I think I recall Rob Gardner pitching in relief, and Ed Kranepool hitting a home run.

William Ortenberg, if you are still out there....Bob Shaw did indeed start this game for the Mets. Rob Gardner relieved him in the seventh with the Mets down 3-2 and gave up two walks and a single, plus a batter reached on an error by Ed Bressoud. Kranepool's homer came in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and a runner on and made the score 8-4.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
