METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 4, 1962 GAME:rich edwards

This was my 2nd and last visit to the Polo Grounds. Our little league took about 50 of us. We sat in the lower left field stands probably close to Thompson's homer. I remember in warmups Gene Freese of the Reds trying to throw balls into the stands, but somehow he always would come up a little short and hit the wall. I believe Mets scored 6 in the first, including a Choo Choo home run. Roger Craig got the win. That combo probably never happened again. I remember we were all upset because the game was part of a day-night doubleheader and we couldn't stay for the night game.

Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
