METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 9, 1967 GAME:Casey D
April 9, 2012
A critical moment occurred in the 8th inning when Adolpho Phillips hit a deep drive to right center and as the Mets right fielder Tommie Reynolds attempted to scale the ivy wall at Wrigley, 2 nine-year old kids sitting in the first row leaned over the wall (pre the wall baskets)to snag a souvenir and appeared to deflect the ball. The game tying run scored (with 2 outs) and Phillips was awarded a triple even thought the Mets argued for a ground rule double which would have left the tying run at third.. The Cubs went on to win it in the 9th. Replays of the "incident" appeared on the WGN news that night as well as an incriminating photo in the next days Chicago Sun Times.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
