I attended this game (the first of a Saturday afternoon twinbill) as an 11-year-old, and I remember the Mets scoring 6 first-inning runs off Claude Osteen (a pretty fair lefty) and Richie (not yet known as Dick) Allen playing 3B for the Dodgers IN A BATTING HELMET!!!

I am incredibly lucky enough to have just picked up an almost mint copy of the program from this game. It is scored through all nine innings so I have all of the player names and what they did PLUS...it is signed by Sandy Koufax on the front!!

Returning to this page to reminisce about the last time the Mets swept a twinbill from the Dodgers until tonight - April 27, 2010...I was 11 then and 49 now!

My dad took me to this, my first major league game (I was 7), and it turned out to be a doubleheader due to a rain out the night before. Some great names involved that day: Gil Hodges as manager, Seaver starting for the Mets. Walter Alston as manager, and Maury Wills, Willie Davis, Richie Allen, and 48-year-old Hoyt Wilhelm in relief for the Dodgers, who also had youngsters like Bill Buckner, Steve Garvey and Bobby Valentine. I remember Cleon Jones won the nightcap with a walk-off homer before they were known as walk-offs.

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.
