METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 13, 1969 GAME:

This was the doubleheader in which Hodges walked out onto the field and removed Cleon from the game for not hustling - one of many "turning points". There was a demonstration between games of a game called "Cast-A-Ball" - or something like that. People were attaching balls to fishing rods and casting them over the right-field fence - it was weird. I was sitting in what I consider the best seats in the house - loge right behind the plate! I had my knishes and hot dogs and Cokes - heaven for a 12-year-old!

Sorry to contradict people, but this WAS NOT the day Hodges yanked Cleon. That happened in a double header vs Houston, when Denis Menke and another Astro both hit grand slams in one game.

Chris -perhaps you were thinking of the 2nd game when Cleon was removed not by Hodges but by the umpire for arguing an out call on an attempted steal. I was there, my first game, and remember the cries of "we want Cleon" from the fans. Don't remember the fishing; see my posting on game 2.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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!
