First Mets game I ever attended -- with a busload of other high school kids from Katonah, NY; several of of the guys got sick-drunk on Rheingold Beer at the park. Beautiful Saturday afternoon -- a day after the Knicks' big NBA championship victory. Big crowd -- I think it was also a Game of the Week on NBC.

I went to this game with two other friends. The Mets really kicked butt in this game. Art Shamsky I think hit a couple of HR's and Dave Marshall who came over from the Giants in the winter trade of 1969 along with Ray Sadecki had 2 or 3 hits.

Joel, kicked butt is right! The Mets pounded out 15 hits and drew 11 walks in this game!

The score was tied 4-4 when the Mets scored eight runs in the bottom of the 5th, sending fourteen men to the plate with nine hits and two walks. Ironically, both walks were by Joe Foy, and two of the outs in the inning came on Duffy Dyer strikeouts. Dyer was called out on strikes for the first and third outs of the inning.

Art Shamsky had only one home run in the game, but he also had a single and a double (both the single and double came in the 8-run inning), drove in 3 runs and scored twice. Dave Marshall had three singles and drove in four runs. Bud Harrelson also had 3 hits and Joe Foy and Tommie agee each walked three times.

My first game ever at Shea. My dear father took me and we sat in the Mezzanine on the first base side. Remember how amazing it was to see the Mets score 14 runs against a very good Giants team. Lived in The Bronx, but my Dad was a National League guy, so I became a Mets fan. Thanks Dad for all the wonderful hours we spent watching ballgames together.

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!
