I went to this game with my grandmother. We saw Jon Matlack shut out the Giants, 4-0, on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Jon pitched a 4-hitter and got Willie McCovey on a called third strike for the final out in the ninth.
The only run Jon would need was scored in the first inning when Jim Fregosi hit into a double play with the bases loaded after Sam McDowell had walked the first three batters of the game. Also, Bud Harrelson hit a triple that scored both Wayne Garrett and Matlack in the second inning.
Grandma and I enjoyed every minute of this game. It was a great day to be at Shea!

This was the first baseball game I ever attended. Me and my dad. I was seven years old. I remember seeing the grass for the first time - so green. Most of my memories of this day have faded. But my love for my dad and the Mets have only grown stronger.
This is a great site. I only remembered the final score of the game and our opponent. Now I feel like I have an anniversary that I can share with my family forever.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
