1965 All Star Game: Killebrew & Met Stadium

[REVISED POST: Sept. 7, 2013]
Nice pregame piece from Zanesville, OH Times Recorder (link to view larger)

Over the next day or two, I will be adding wise words of wisdom, as only I can, regarding the 1965 All Star Game.

For now, I'm content in just posting up these lovely Walter Iooss , Jr. photos, and those from some newspapers from around the country. And this nice video from MLB Productions.

PDF FROM "SALINA JOURNAL," go to PDF link to enlarge - July 14, 1965

Besides Harmon Killebrew, I'll concentrate on Jimmie Hall, Earl Battey, Tony Oliva, Mudcat Grant, Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, and, of course, Willie Mays and the rest of the magnificent National League Squad present at the Met on that day, July 13, 1965.

Much more to come - please check back for extra shots, commentary later!!

As Herb Carneal would put it: "So long, everybody."
