My father took me to this double header. I was 10 and I distinctly remember sitting in the right field seats (just fair) and having several home runs land near us, including one by Stan Musial. I was very happy to discover this site and see the box score confirm my nice memories of this day. Thanks!

This is the only game I ever saw in the Polo Grounds. Mostly I remember Stan the Man's HR; it was my birthday present! Wonderful to see the box score!

My Dad took me to this double header at The Polo Grounds. I was almost 9 but an ardent fan of baseball in a family with 10 kids. We were all baseball fans and embraced the Mets and the return of NL Baseball to NY. I remember that field so vividly and the imaginations as I peered through binoculars at close ups of so many greats of the game: Musial, Hodges, Woodling.
I was hooked as a Mets fan and went to more than 30 games in '69 and was there when the Mets clinched the pennant. I grabbed chunks of grass and tried in vain to dig out home plate with a bunch of other crazies! What a sweet summer that was. My sister Anne and her boyfriend Willie took me to so many games in my teenage years to Shea! Great memories of Shea- Kiner's Korner-before there was ESPN and good sports highlights!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
