We went to this one, it was a weeknight game. Some of my favorite baseball names were part of this one.

I remember filling in the scoresheet names like Von Joshua, Sandy Vance, Billy Grabarkewitz, Bill Sudakis, Andy Kosco, Joe Foy and Nolan Ryan.

For some reason, the speedy young Dodger leadoff hitter, Joshua impressed us. Might have been a nice running catch or a baserunning deal but this game and his play stayed with me.

Joshua put together a few good years and was a similar but not as good version of another great sounding name, Al Bumbry!

But,say hey, What's In A Name?

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!
