METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 12, 1969 GAME:

We couldn't get tickets for the games at Shea, so my father drove us from Far Rockaway, Queens to Baltimore to see the game. Incredably, it wasn't sold out..(Baltimore isn't a sports town). My family stood where the left field stands meet the foul line during batting practice. We had Mets banners and were yelling encouraging words to the players. Reliever Ron Taylor threw my Dad a ball during practice. We were the only Mets fans at that game. During the game, a local fan paraded through the aisles with a sign that said "Save The Railroad." My father, a Brooklynite, shouted "Forget the railroad. You betta save the Orioles from the Mets!!!"

Jerry Koosman held the Orioles hitless through the first six innings and the Mets won their first World Series game. Donn Clendenon homered and Al Weis got an RBI single to break a tie in the top of the ninth. In the 7th, Ed Charles made an outstanding grab of Dave Johnson’s hard grounder for an inning-ending force play. This was one of many defensive gems turned by the Mets in the Series that got overshadowed by the catches Agee and Swoboda made over the next two games. Charles looked much like his third base counterpart, Brooks Robinson, on the play. He was even wearing the same uniform #5 in front of the Baltimore crowd! Ed’s stellar stop was a sign of things to come at Shea later in the week.

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.
