Game Rewind: Stengel wins 3,000th game


On April 24, 1965, Casey Stengel recorded his 3,000th career win as a manager when the New York Mets rallied for three runs in the ninth inning to beat the San Francisco Giants, 7-6, at Candlestick Park. During his three-and-one-half year tenure as Mets manager, Stengel compiled a record of 175 wins and 404 losses (.302 winning percentage).

Trailing 6-4 in the ninth inning, the Mets loaded the bases and rookie Danny Napoleon cracked a bases-clearing triple to give New York the lead, and eventual win. Napoleon, who appeared in just 80 games in the majors (all with the Mets between 1965-1966), delivered his only career triple.

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.
