METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 3, 1969 GAME:

David Davidson
July 16, 2008
This marked my first visit to Shea Stadium. Seats were in the upper deck about halfway between 1st base and the right-field foul pole. I remember my disappointment that neither Seaver or Koosman were the scheduled starters but that was forgotten when Jane Jarvis hit the first notes on the organ to play "Meet the Mets." Jerry Grote's line drive into the right field bullpen ended the game in the 11th inning. When I look back I can say I saw Hank Aaron play in person. I was fortunate to also see Mays, Mantle, Killebrew, Stargell and others during my pre-teen and teenage years growing up in the New York area.

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!
