METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 23, 1964 GAME:

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.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
