This was my 1st game ever. My dad took me and we had upper deck seats. I remember Oscar Gamble dropping a fly ball and almost dropping another which was the last out of the game. I'm trying to find a boxscore of this game. I was 7 years old.

Dave, the boxscore and play-by-play for the game are on www.retrosheet.org. Please e-mail me if you need help.

Gamble dropped a fly ball hit by Al Weis in the bottom of the fifth with two outs and Ron Swoboda on first base. Swoboda came around to score the only Mets run of the game.

The last out of the game is listed as "Swoboda lined to Browne." Byron Browne was playing RF in the game while Oscar Gamble played center. Cleon Jones made the second out of the ninth inning by flying to Gamble, so it could have been the second out you are thinking of, unless it was Browne instead of Gamble who almost dropped the ball.

You have a great memory! Thanks for sharing!

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.
