METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 26, 1968 GAME:Feat Fan
August 27, 2005
We used to vacation at a place called the Perry House in New Hampshire every August, it was a Catskills like experience a la the film "A Walk On The Moon" (sans the sexy Diane Lane).
There was an old Philco radio (tube job) on the porch which barely was able to receive the radio broadcast. As the night wore on, the reception improved. I sat there diligently determined to hear every pitch as called by Lindsey Nelson and Bob Murphy. This was the first win ever for hard luck pitcher Jim McAndrew (from Lost Nation Iowa) who lost a bunch of 1-0 games that summer. I can still feel that Canadian breeze on an August night in New England!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
