I don't recall many details, but this was my first game ever (as an almost 8-year-old). True to pre-1969 form, the Mets lost that day behind Nolan Ryan.

Lemaster with a cg win, fires a 6 hitter, fans 10. Ryan goes the distance, fanning 12, walking 7.

Game includes a home run by the Toy Cannon. Some fun names appear in the boxscore, Dick Simpson, Hector Torres, Phil Linz, Don Bosch!

We were there loading up on soda, dogs and cracker jacks. To be thirteen and out of school in just a few days again!

Checking back in almost 5 1/2 years after my previous posting...

Perusing the boxscore, I'm struck by several fun facts...the Glider playing 1B...Agee playing RF...Rusty Staub batting cleanup & playing 1B for the Stros; he had a game-tying single in the 5th...5 of the Mets 8 position starters -- Bosch, Linz, Buchek, Agee, and Weis -- with interstate batting wonder Jerry Grote, hitting .310, batted cleanup!...Lemaster & Ryan each going the distance, and Ryan with his typical line of 7 walks & 12 K's...35 years later, I still shudder and get a queasy feeling in my stomach about that stupid *&$%#@ trade with the Angels for Fregosi!

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.
