METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 27, 1964 GAME:Mr. T
March 13, 2004
It was fan appreciation day at “Big Shea”. Actually it was a twilight-night twin bill. I don’t remember much except that they gave away a lot of junk you didn’t need. In between the games the Mets and Reds had some sort of competition on the field. I remember a relay toss from the outfield to home was one of the events.

One interesting aspect of this game is that the Reds’ victory put them into first place in the National League ahead of the Phillies (who were in the midst of their “Phamous Phold”.) They went on to sweep the Mets in the second half of the doubleheader for a lead of one full game over Philadelphia. The Cincinnati team then lost four of five games (all at home) to close out the season. Overshadowed by the Phils’ collapse, the Reds had a failure of their own in a quest for a pennant. The St. Louis Cardinals wound up in first place and went to the World Series.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
