This was the first of three straight game in which Frank Thomas hit two homers in each game. He sure loved hitting in the Polo Grounds.

The story Thomas tells is that after one of the homers during these three games, he returned to the dugout and Casey asked about the new yellow glasses he was wearing. Thomas said that the trainer had given them to him. Casey said to tell the trainer to buy a gross of them.

Of course, the Mets lost all three games.

This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 12 years old when my parents took me to the Polo Grounds and bought me my first yearbook which I still have today. You know,the one with the baby on the cover and Miss Rheingold on the back cover. What I remembered most about this game was Frank Thomas hitting those two home runs and I remembered the final score, but to actually see the box score at this site was a real thrill. This is my first visit to this site and have added it to my favorites. Life Long Mets fan from the beginning.

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.
