My dad took me to this game. It was on a Friday evening, if I remember correctly and it was thrilling to see him become the first Met pitcher to reach 20 wins in a season! (I also seem to recall that Richie Allen, the Phillies' first baseman, had his first game back after being suspended (yet again) by Philadelphia management!)

My father took me. It was definitely a day game (which were not unusual on weekdays in April and September then). Agee and Shamsky both hit home runs into the Mezzanine in the first inning.

The game was indeed a Friday night at Shea. The game where Agee and Shamsky hit first inning homers was two days later, Sunday afternoon September 7.

Funny how we have different memories. This was a 1 of 2 games the Mets played that night. It was the first baseball game I ever attended, part of a twi-night doubleheader. It was windy in the upper deck and we had blankets. I remember Jerry Grote hitting a home run. I also have a vague recollection of fly-fishermen demonstrating how far they could cast their lines between games. I've been to 60 or 70 games since then but I'll never forget my first night at Shea!

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!
