On June 11, 1965, more than 55,000 fans packed in Shea Stadium, the largest crowd of the major league season at the time, to catch an old fashioned pitchers duel between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets. Warren Spahn made the start for the Mets and Don Drysdale for the Dodgers. Both pitchers would pitch complete games with the Dodgers edging Spahn and the Mets, 2-1.
The Dodgers scored the eventual winning run when Drysdale hit a home run over the center field wall against Spahn, his counterpart.
