This double header happened when I was 10 years old. My dad was getting excited because it seemed like the Mets were getting good. In the second game, I'm not sure, but I think Rod Gaspar threw out Lou Brock at home plate on a single to left field. (He was at third and may have been delayed, thinking he might have to tag up.)

I attended this doubleheader with my two older brothers back in '69. 13 at the time, it remains a great memory from a remarkable season. We were sitting in the upper deck down the left field line, on the fair side of the foul pole. Rod Gaspar's assist throwing out Brock at home plate in the 8th inning is one of the best plays I've seen in person at Shea. Gaspar was out of sight below us, but the ball appeared out of nowhere as a bullet streaking to home plate to nail the speedy Brock.

It was a very warm day in the sun of the upper deck on that Sunday, but a DH sweep is something special, especially against the Cardinals, who won the NL pennant the prior season. Koosman pitched a great game for the shutout! I wish I'd kept my own scorecard of the game.

I remember this game almost like it was yesterday. I was five (I'm 50 now!) and it was the very first professional ball game I had ever seen. My Uncle got 3 tix and took me and my Dad. It was hot and sunny. I remember being impressed with how big and green the field looked to me. Had my first Crackerjacks. Sat on the first base side--pretty good seats. I remember thinking no one would score. Then in the 7th inning (I think) Buddy Harrelson tripled, and the excitement was suddenly electric. When Tommie Agree got his hit and Harrelson scored, we all went bonkers. Lou Brock (My brother's favorite player - a great base stealer) almost scored in the next inning, but was thrown out at the plate. Great Memories! I loved the Mets (still do), even though everyone else in my family are primarily Yankees fans.

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!
