METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 16, 1971 GAME:

I went to this game with my friend David from Midwood High School as a pre graduation day treat (we had morning schedules our senior year so we got out of school before noon time). Anyway the Mets Mike Jorgenson hits two home runs off of LA pitcher Bill Singer. I also remember that future Mets manager Bobby Valentine was playing 3rd base that day for the Dodgers and there were a lot of his fans and friends from Connecticut who were cheering him on that afternoon.

One minor correction to Joel's post from August of 2003: Mike Jorgensen did hit two homers in this game, but only one came off Bill Singer. His second home run came in the bottom of the eighth off reliever Jose Pena.

Jerry Koosman made a rare relief appearance in this game, pitching 1.1 innings in relief of Charlie Williams.

My dad took me to my first game. We sat in RF - box seats. Took the subway from Manhattan. Seem to remember I skipped school that day! Jorgensen hit two - both deep drives to rf. Thought I remembered a Dodger (Mota or Wills) stealing home -or caught stealing home. Box score doesn't show it though.

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.

Thank you!
