METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 24, 1968 GAME:

Steve Venable
September 11, 2003
I'm trying to determine the date of my first Braves game attended in person in 1968 (Atlanta Stadium) at the age of 9. I'm positive that it was against the Mets and I'm reasonably certain that Joe Torre hit a HR for the Braves. The final score of 4-2 Braves also sounds familiar. 5-24-68 was a Friday, which would work because I was in school at the time and probably wouldn't have attended a game with school the next day. There was also a 4-2 Braves win on 7-25-68, but this game was on a Thursday, and although I was out of school for the summer, my parents would have had to work the next day, so this date is less likely. I tried to find a box score of these games on-line, with no luck.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
