New York Mets 1962 Ticket
50th anniversary of the New York Mets is in 2012. I was a fan from the beginning, at age 11. My father took me to the Polo Grounds to see the Mets play on Sunday, August 5, 1962. Miraculously, in a season where they lost 120 games, the Mets won this game, 5-2, against the Cincinnati Reds.The first game of a double-header. We didn't stay for the second game(which the Mets lost). Al Jackson was the pitcher who won the game. Note: This game was played on the same day that Marilyn Monroe died. We heard about her death on the car radio as we drove from Danbury to the Polo Grounds. Copyright: Marc Catone, 2011.
