Mom’s Uncle Mark and her cousins, Flo and Joanie, visited us in 1964. I suppose the New York World’s Fair may have been part of the reason. Here is the only video we have of them, aside from the film of Uncle Mark, Dad, Steve and Bob as Shea Stadium.

Mets vs. Cubs – August 22, 1964
I remember attending this game, with Dad, Uncle Mark and Bob but I don’t remember the game specifics. I do remember learning how to score a game from Uncle Mark. I had never seen that done before.
This was the year of the brand new Shea Stadium opening along with the Worlds Fair. It was a big deal. During the game, Uncle Mark bought us Mets pennants to wave and you can see up walking out with them in this video. Wow! That was a big deal.
