First MLB game I ever attended. Sat in nosebleeds behind the plate and could still hear Nolan Ryan warming up in the bullpen before the game. BANG! Struck out 17. Only hit by Johnny Briggs, a flare in the fourth. No one else even got good wood on a foul ball. After game stopped with wife and signed about 200 autographs including my glove. Duffy Dyer,who caught game also autographed glove. To this day he was the nicest pro athlete I have ever met. His wife who stood and waited smiling patiently was just as nice (and a major hottie!)

This was also my first game. I remember walking into the stadium even before the game began, with the whole croud cheering "Lets go Mets." I rember being upset because my father made us leave early to beat the traffic and the Mets scored another run!

Hey anyone else remember this? After about 1,500 AB's, Derrell McKinley Harrelson hits his first HR over the fence. He had one in '67, but it was an inside the parker as Al Luplow (just sold by the Mets to the Pirates) argued that the ball was foul. Buddy would use this as springboard to go on and blast 4 more as a Met. His total of 6 lifetime Mets HR's matched Seaver's 6, except Seaver hit 6 more with the Reds and Harrelson hit only one more (forgot with who). Can someone confirm this event?

Fan, you're off by one day. The home run Buddy hit was the previous day. It was the only one he ever hit at Shea Stadium. His lone non-Mets homer came as a Texas Ranger in 1980.

This day belonged to Nolan Ryan. He struck out 15 batters and pitched a one-hitter for his first major league shutout. It was as a sign of things to come. It's too bad those things didn't come with Nolan in a Mets' uniform.

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.
