METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 23, 1964 GAME:
March 29, 2002
Bobby Klaus had a Met homer that hit the left field foul pole. They won this game in the 9th, and I believe won the first game of this doubleheader also in the 9th. What a thrill to see a Mets doubleheader sweep, something during these years as rare an event as, say, a Bobby Klaus home run (of any kind).

The Mets sweep a Sunday doubleheader at Shea with this win after winning game one 2-1 in ten innings. Willard Hunter is the winning pitcher in both games. Hunter won just four games in his major league career and two of the wins came on this day!

Correction on first comment, Klaus' HR wasn't a 9th inning game winner. Ed Kranepool and Charlie Smith had the walk-off game winning singles of respective games in this doubleheader sweep.
Another memory of this doubleheader was the Met team coming out of the dugout, probably between games, to unfurl a long banner with a message on the order of "To Met Fans - We love you too!", in response to all the banner carrying fans of those days.
