METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 23, 1967 GAME:Andrew Caldwell

I was at this game!! Hendley outpitched Drysdale, of all people. I also remember my favorite Met, Ron Swoboda, caught a long fly ball that would have just sneaked over the rightfield wall if he hadn't pulled it in. I think Drysdale hit the ball in question. Beautiful summer day, I had just turned 10, and I think it was the first time that I saw the Mets win (maybe the 2nd) in person. Just finished reading the new Koufax book, in which Hendley figures prominently as the losing pitcher in Sandy's perfect game - and Hendley pitched a 1-hitter, with the run scoring on a throwing error.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
