METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 22, 1962 GAME:

This was the second game I went to at the Polo Grounds that first season. My dad took me and I remember leaving our right field seats a little early to beat the crowd in the ninth - we saw the game ending double-play while standing underneath the upperdeck behind home plate.

Mike McCormick started for the Giants and I believe the score went back and forth before the Mets went ahead late in the game. Prior to the game there was a home-run hitting contest. A Met won that too. And my dad found a parking space on the street right near the upper deck home plate entrance so it was a winning night all around (the Polo Grounds was located underneath hence entrance was through the upper deck.

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!
