This was the first game I ever went to. Bright sunny day, sat right behind Dodger dugout, and don't remember any detail other than the starting playyers I entered onto the scorecard that I still have. OF was Hahn, Jones, and Singleton. Garrett, Harrelson, and Aspromonte started in the infield, Sadecki pitched, and I think that Kranepool and Grote also started. Bill Singer pitched for the Dodgers. This was the only game that I never saved the ticket stub. Although I don't remember, I'm sure I saw Nolan Ryan and Gil Hodges, and Dick Allen as a Dodger.

Based on the boxscore provided, I correct my memory above that Aspromonte was the Mets 2B...it was Boswell. And it appears that this was a very interesting game, as Allen and Singleton homered, a young Steve Garvey was at 3B, Bobby Valentine was at SS, and the game was won in the bottom of the 9th on a pinch-single by Tommie Agee!

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.
