METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 26, 1964 GAME:
September 3, 2002
A great day in the early Met years. My recollection is that Charlie Smith was the hitting star capping the day with a three run homer for a six run ninth inning to finish off the Cubbies.The wind must have really been blowing out at Wrigley that day.
The apparently true story is that in those days before the Internet, ESPN or even all-news radio, a Met fan called the sports desk at a newspaper to find out how the Mets had done. When told that the Mets had scored 19 runs that day, he responded: "Yes, but did they win?"

Fat Jack Fisher pitching. We all loved that guy; he was the best Mets pitcher between Roger Craig and Tom Seaver.
Yes, Ed K is right.
"The Mets scored 19 in Chicago today."
"Did they win?"
Ah, those were the days!

I always remembered the fact that Jack Fisher made the first and third outs in the ninth inning. Your box score proves my memory was accurate some 49 years later. I was ten years old at the time and came home from school during the fourth inning. It was one of those "radio only" games from Wrigley.
