METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 10, 1967 GAME:
July 23, 2002
Brutally cold, windy, and gray Sunday afternoon, with an unusually small crowd on hand to brave the elements. Mets took an early 2-0 lead, and McGraw retired the first nine. My cousin and I were screaming for a perfect game! (I think we started with one out in the first!)
Oh well, it was all down hill after that, as McGraw ran out of gas early, and the Mets couldn't muster a comeback. The vendors ran out of hot chocolate early, too, on a day more suited to a Jets game.

To Ken S. great story about your time on that brutally cold, windy and gray afternoon at Shea. September weather in New York can be topsy-turvy: One day it can be like a summer day in June and then it can turn into November-December without the snow. According to retrosheet, the attendance was 12,339.
