Mets Rewind: June 23

Posted on June 23, 2010 by


Here’s what happened on this day in New York Mets history:

1963; Jimmy Piersall of the New York Mets hits the 100th home run of his major league career and celebrates by running around the bases backwards. Dallas Green of the Phillies, who gave up the home run, is not amused. Neither is Commissioner Ford Frick, who is in the stands.

2010: R.A. Dickey pitches eight scorless innings as the New York Mets shutout the Detroit Tigers 5-0 at Citi Field. The win improved Dickey’s record to 6-0 as a Met.
