Stubs

This is something that I was thinking of doing a couple of years back.

I came across a pair of ticket stubs from a Giants game from 43 years ago.  Since I just happen to have the MLB season set from that year, I decided to replay this game.

Final from Candlestick Park:

2-5, run scored, 5 RBI, HR

I plan to do this more often, as I come across ticket stubs around the house.

Stay tuned!

1974: John D’Acquisto, Game 6

May 4th, 1974

Welcome to Parc Jarry!

A head-to-head match up between two rookies…

Final from Parc Jarry:

The Giants’ bats come alive as D’Acquisto goes 6 innings, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits, with a pair of strikeouts, for the win.

D’Acquisto: win, record now 3-2 (actual result: loss, record: 2-2)

Next game: May 8, 1974: John D’Acquisto vs. Jon Matlack @ Shea Stadium

Stay tuned!

Locked In

Whether it’s weekly, daily or whatever, I think I’m back in the table top sports groove, along with the other gaming that I’ve picked up along the way.

Current plans are to finish the home stand with the 1967 Giants (2 vs. Pittsburgh, 4 vs. New York) and then move on to the next full day of games in the 1917 replay (April 14, 8 games).

Along the way there will be some B-17 bomber action.

Stay tuned!
