METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 14, 1962 GAME:

I remember watching this game on television 40 years ago like it was yesterday. Al Jackson pitched all 15 innings almost perfectly. The game was won on a single by Mel Roach(that was his real name!)

Dallas Green started for Phils and Jackson was great for all 15 innings. Mets had numerous chances to win including bases loaded no-outs in extra innings but Pignatano grounded into double play to kill it.

Jackson threw 215 pitches according to a book I have. Can you imagine any pitcher with a pitch count like that today? Apparently, the Mets were going to remove him after 11 innings but he wanted to stay in and try to win it because the Mets kept getting runners on base and he thought they would eventually score.

I came home that day from my summer office job at about 6 pm, I just wished I could see the Mets on TV, but figured the game was long over. Just for fun, I turned on the TV and to my amazement the game was still on. Al Jackson was one of my favorite original Mets. His efforts that day help explain why.

I watched that game from the bleachers in center field a very hot day and a gutty Al Jackson wasn't enough. The Met offense was anemic that day.

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.
