My first major league game!!! I was 10 years old and our little league sponsered a trip to Shea to see this game. What memories! We got to the park for a pregame dinner in the Diamond Club, hot dogs, etc. The big surprize was when Tug McGraw and Bud Harrelson showed up for us. Wow.. The ball signed by them sits behind my desk on the bookshelf, somewhat scuffed and muddied (we didn't always have a ball back then, so 10 year olds will forget the future to enjoy the present). We sat in the mezzanine on the 1st base side, near some loud ( and a little drunk) fans. I remember everytime Jim McAndrew got a strike, the guys yelled out "That a way Jimmy Baby!!!". Soon us little leaguers joined in (the shouting, not the beer). McGraw finished the game. It was the NLCS preview and we didn't know then. The thing that sticks the most though, is that this was the first and last game I ever went to with my Dad. My parents split up soon after that. My boys, on the other hand, have already been going to games since they were 3 years old. Hope to have many more, too.

Cleon Jones had the night off. I think he had some sort of mild injury. Anyway comes the seventh inning and he had to go to work. He singled in the game's only run and then was pinch run for by Tom Seaver. On Kiner's Corner that night Ralph said to Cleon "You're on the show so much you might just take it over." Cleon replied, "Ah Ralph, you can keep it another year."

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.

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!
