This was the very first Major League game I attended. Toured the city earlier in the day with my Dad. Went to a Horn & Hardart to eat. Then, went to the ballpark. It was a day I'll NEVER forget. Ron Swoboda hit a home run on the roof in left and Richie "Call me Dick" Allen hit one over the left field roof and out of the ball park.

Note from a Phillies fan: I was also at this game at Connie Mack Stadium-- I was 10 years old. The think that made it stick in my memory was that right before Dick Allen hit that mammoth home run, a loud firecracker went off just as the pitch was released!

Andy ... you are absolutely right. After you mentioned it, I too recall the loud firecracker right before Dick Allen hit the home run on the roof in left field.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
