The Cubs and Mets combined for 11 home runs in this game, seven by the Cubs. At that time the eleven homers tied a major league record. I'm not sure if that record still stands.

This game was a donnybrook with Adolpho Phillips crashing three home runs!
Originally scheduled as a single game, this became the back end of a Sunday doubleheader after Saturday's wash out.
In that game, Tommy Davis homered to left field off the Cubs Bill Hands to lead off the second inning of a game in Chicago. The Saturday afternoon game was rained out after four innings.
Great when the wind blows at Wrigley!

This is what I loved about baseball as a seven year old Mets fan. Sunday doubleheaders! Game two of this one was a classic even though the Mets lost. I don't know if Adolpho Phillips ever had a better day as a pro, but to my mind that day I thought he was going to go to the Hall of Fame. Probably the first game I ever watched on TV from Wrigley Field. I was hooked!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
