Happy Anniversary to me

August 8, 2009 - John Mehno

I attended my first major league baseball game on Aug. 8, 1964, a Saturday afternoon at Forbes Field.

Final: Pirates 5, Cubs 2.

Here's how the teams lined up that day:

                                                  
1. Joey Amalfitano              2B       1. Bob Bailey                   SS
2. Leo Burke                    RF           2. Bill Virdon                  CF
3. Billy Williams               LF           3. Roberto Clemente             RF
4. Ron Santo                    3B           4. Jerry Lynch                  LF
5. Ernie Banks                  1B          5. Willie Stargell              1B
6. Billy Cowan                  CF           6. Gene Freese                  3B
7. Jimmie Schaffer               C        7. Bill Mazeroski               2B
8. Andre Rodgers                SS       8. Jim Pagliaroni                C
9. Lew Burdette                  P           9. Bob Veale                     P

That's five Hall of Famers in the game. Not bad.
