1965 Met Fantazy Card Opening Day Line-up

An April 12th, 1965 the Mets opened the season at Shea for the first time. It didn't effect their luck however, as they were victims of Don Drysdale who pitched a complete game. The Mets did plate a run but lost to the Dodgers by a score of 6-1.

As read by Ralph Kiner:

"Well hi everybody I'm Ralph Kiner along with Bob Murphy and Lindsey Nelson bringing you Mets baseball. Today is opening day of the 1965 season, and a beautiful day it is. New York will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers here at Shea stadium. Casey Stengel's opening day line-up for the New York Mets:



Leading off for the Mets and playing Center Field-
Playing shortstop and hitting second-
Batting third the right fielder-
In the clean-up spot and playing 1st base is New York hometown favorite-
The left fielder-
will be batting 5th followed by third baseman-
The second baseman-
Will bat 7th. Batting 8th today is the catcher-
and on the mound for the Mets pitching his second opening day start-"

You will find either your initials or your name on the card. When I do this I don't really want it to distract from the card, so I try and blend it in somehow, so it's there if you look for it, but it doesn't stand out. I do this to show how much I appreciate and promote people sharing with each other online.
