Casey Stengel manages his final game for the New York Mets, losing 5-1 to the Philadelphia Phillies at Shea Stadium. Following the game, Stengel, and a group of contemporaries in for Old Timer’s Day go out for a night on the town. After leaving Toots Shore, Stengel falls and breaks his hip. The manager just a week away from his 75th birthday would be forced to retire due to the injury.
