METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1965 GAME:rich edwards
September 19, 2002
Attended this Saturday afternoon game. Koufax pitched. He had a no hitter for about four innings. When the first Met hit blooped into right field you could sense the fan disappointment. I think every fan in the stadium was rooting for a no-no. Koufax had an aura about him. I don't think anyone disliked him. It's a shame the mindset of the sixties was for a pitcher to complete every game he started. Koufax may have avoided arthritis and lasted a lot longer.

Accoring to retrosheet, Koufax gave up his first hit to Hawk Taylor with one out in the second, a clean single to CF.
Al Jackson pitched well (outstanding by today's standards, 3ER in 7 innings) but it wasn't good enough with Sandy on the mound. Koufax retired ten of the last eleven batters in the game and did not allow a hit after the sixth inning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
