Fifty years ago.........................

I actually remember, twelve-year old me, sitting on the couch in our den watching this game.  It was the first of a double header, Phillies versus the Mets at Shea Stadium in New York.   Jim Bunning, later to be a Senator from Kentucky,  pitched a perfect ballgame, the first in the National League for some 84 years.  Baseball at its best.

All you trivia buffs probably know this, but the Phillies' rookie Rick Wise, pitched and won the second game of the double header.
