Game Rewind: Dodgers-Mets (06.11.1965)

On June 11, 1965, more than 55,000 fans packed in Shea Stadium, the largest crowd of the major league season at the time, to catch an old fashioned pitchers duel between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets. Warren Spahn made the start for the Mets and Don Drysdale for the Dodgers. Both pitchers would pitch complete games with the Dodgers edging Spahn and the Mets, 2-1.

The Dodgers scored the eventual winning run when Drysdale hit a home run over the center field wall against Spahn, his counterpart.

Mets Rewind
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
