A fight broke out in this game. Mets pitcher Frank Lary decked somebody but I couldn't tell who it was. A couple of weeks later, Lary was traded to the Braves.

frank lary hit rico carty and then chris canazzaro decked carty at home plate. I ran into chris after a game when he was with the cubs in 1970 and told him I saw that with my dad and he got a chuckle that I rememberd it

Before this game , the Mets traded Frank Thomas to the Phillies who were contending for a pennant. In return the Mets received Wayne Graham (who later in his life was to coach Rice University to the College WS) and a huge righthanded pitcher by the name of Gary Kroll. Next year in Spring Training , Kroll combined with Gordon Richardson to pitch a no hitter. Remmeber there has never been a Mets no- hitter during the regular schedule.

It was my first time at Shea and of course it was a Sunday DH. The games were my 11th birthday present! I learned how to keep score and saw at least three HOF'ers (Spahn, Matthews, and Casey.) The fight was great, but alas, my Metsies dropped both games.
