METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 17, 1969 GAME:Richard Holmes

This was a banner day doubleheader and my mother and I took the train to New York from Connecticut. We had Field Level seats down the right field line. About the third inning I went for some refreshments behind home plate. A gentleman came up the isle and gave me four tickets for the seats behind home plate 2 rows back. I got my mother and we enjoyed the doubleheader from a pair of great seats! This game was a makeup from earlier in the season. In fact they played the Padres in back to back doubleheaders and got the Mets on the roll that ultimately sent them roaring past the Cubs. The only memory I have specifically is a Duffy Dyer home run which may have come in the second game. I don't remember.
