This was the first baseball game my brother took me to. I was 8 years old. I remember Jerry Grote hitting the game winning home run. It just cleared the orange line they had on the wall in left field corner. It seems like it was yesterday.

This game will always be special for me, because it was the first baseball game ever for both my brother and myself. I was eleven and he was five. Not only was it Easter Sunday but it was Helmet Day as well. We sat in the Loge by First base. My favorite player Tom Seaver was pitching. At the end of nine, there was no score. Much to our disappointment, our father wanted to leave in order to beat traffic. Before we got to our car, we heard a huge roar from the stadium. My father turned on the car radio and we found out that Jerry Grote had hit a "walk- off" home run in the bottom of the eleventh. Some 36 years later, I can still remember it like it was yesterday.

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.
