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!

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
