METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 24, 1967 GAME:Steve B
April 5, 2003
The final home game of the 1967 season. Freezing cold and damp. For Fan Apperciation Day, we got orange caps with a blue bill that had the Mets' skyline logo on them. It was a golf hat with a flexible band in the back, I think.
Most vivid memory of the action was actually on the scoreboard. There were regular updates on the incredible pennant race going on in the American League when Boston, Minnesota, Detroit and Chicago were all still in it.
And, oh yeah, Joe Moock played 3rd base.
