This is the first baseball game I ever attended. I was 9 1/2 years old, and had first become aware of baseball -- and first become a Met fan --during the 1969 World Series, nine months before.

My family and I lived in New York City but spent the summer of 1970 in Santa Ana, CA. I attended this game at Dodger Stadium with a man named Chuck. At the time Chuck was working with my Dad for Nawal, a conglomerate of NBC and Walt Disney. Nawal was producing the first "Disney on Parade", and my dad was the company manager.

This game involved a classic Mets come-from-behind win. Their bats were dormant most of the game, but they rallied from 3-1 deficit for 1 4-3 win. I was one of the only fans at the quiet Dodger stadium cheering during the comeback.

I was there,too.I had to make up my mind who to root for because I liked both teams. In the 5th, I think it was, the Mets pulled a classic "you take it, no you take it" play where three players let an easy pop fall in. Classic Mets except this was the new Mets and they came back.

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.
