METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 15, 1969 GAME:

Michael Fontana

Stayed up late and listened on the radio. This game will ever be etched in my mind, as Steve Carlton set a then-record 19 strikeouts in a single nine-inning game. And yet, the Mets won 4-3 on two two-run homers by none other than the immortal Ron Swoboda!

Steven Selss

I remember watching this game on TV. I remember Swoboda's two home runs, but I also remember him making two running, diving, sliding catches in the outfield; Swoboda single-handedly won that game in the stretch run to the World Series after being swept in Chicago. Am I wrong in my memory of these catches?

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.

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!
