Baseball From Shea Stadium Dedication
Date: April 16, 1964
Casey Stengel was the first Mets manager and also the first manager to skipper the team at Shea Stadium. Along with players such as Larry Bearnarth, Rod Kanehl and Jack Fisher, Stengel autographed this baseball as part of the stadium dedication the day before the first-ever Mets game at the venue.
