I was at this game. Richie Allen hit three home runs all to different fields in an awsome display of power! I got a hat because it was fan appreciation day!

I was 6 years old, a Phillies fan and Richie Allen was my favorite player. Richie Allen hit 3 consecutive home runs including a grand slam with 2 out in the 9th inning. He drove in 7 runs in the Phillies 10-3 win. It was the only game I ever saw him play in person, and it was the only game in his career where he hit 3 home runs.

I was sitting behind 3rd base about 25 rows up when I saw Richie Allen hit 3 consecutive home runs, including a grand slam off of Ron Taylor, who had just entered the game. The ball went about halfway up the light pole in left center field. It was the longest home run I've ever seen at Shea in the 41 years I've been going there! The crowd was absolutely stunned! We were actually applauding Allen's effort as he was rounding 3rd base.

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!
