New York Mets vs. Cincinnati Reds at Shea Stadium, Flushing, New York. A Saturday afternoon game on August 19, 1972, with a crowd of 43,257 fans. The Mets lost 5-0 to the Reds.
47 years ago almost to the day.
All pics were taken by me with my trusty Yashica TL Electro-X 35mm SLR on Kodak Ektachrome 64 color slide film. I was using a 2x teleconverter on my 50mm Auto Yashinon lens.
The high temperature was 84 degrees which was recorded at Central Park. Bright sunshine and low humidity – perfect baseball weather!
Have a great day everyone and Let’s Go Mets! – Chris
