This day in baseball

The New York Mets made their National League debut on April 11, 1962 in St. Louis.  The game finally took place after being rained out the previous night.  The Mets lost to the Cardinals at Busch Stadium, 11-4.   Gil Hodges and Charlie Neal did, at least, provide a positive side for the Mets, hitting the first two home runs in the new franchise’s history.
