— Days Without Shea —

On July 4th, I published this photo and nice note from the Bobster on the 1964 World's Fair.

As it is All-Star week and all the talk is about the game being played up in the Bronx, Loge13 thought we should remember one of the greatest All-Star games ever played: the 1964 game at the brand new Shea Stadium.

We'll have more on that game later. For now, lets set the stage. It is 1964. The first summer since the JFK assassination. The city's newest baseball franchise opens its state-of-the-art ballpark in Flushing. And across the street, the 1964 World's Fair is in full swing. Tourists from all over the globe are coming to Queens to get a peek at the future. Somewhere in the little-visited "Hall of Blogs," an enterprising nerd posted this video clip on his site "1964WorldsFair.com."
