I cut Junior HS to see the Mets play the brand new Expos in this game and there weren't many people in the stands. A cold clammy April afternoon game.

Saw Agee hit his monster HR into the upper deck and I can't imagine there were more than 8,000 people there.

Even less if it was late in the game. But the Mets won and it was their first win of 1969.

I saw Agee a few years ago at Shea and told him I was there for his blast. He didn't seem to care or believe me. Who knows?

I've never seen footage of that HR since. Back then not all the games were televised or recorded. No diamond vision to replay it either. And no curtain call or HR apple.

I believe Agee's homer may still be the only homer in Shea history to land in the upper deck - of course there is not much of an upper deck at Shea, just down both lines.

Ed, you're right. Agee's homer was the only homer in Shea history to land in the upper deck- that was a monster home run but people don't seem to remember he had another one that day.

This game also marked the first time the Mets were ever over .500.

My error the Mets were over .500 on 4/17/66. (2-1) than proceeded to lose their next 5 games.

Actually, the first time the Mets went over .500 was after 3 games in 1966, not this game.

In addition to this being the game where Tommie Agee hit the monster home run, it was also the major league debut and first win for Gary Gentry.

Gentry pitched a 1-2-3 first inning and then the Mets got him some immediate breathing room. They put four two-out singles together and took a 2-0 lead after one. Gentry gave one back in the second on a John Bateman homer, but the Mets answered back in their half as Agee hit the first of his two home runs in the game.

Gentry did not allow another run until the ninth when he gave up two singles and a double, putting the tying runs in scoring position. Cal Koonce came in to get pinch-hitter Don Bosch and the Mets were 2-1 after three games.

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.
