I went to this game with my grandmother. We saw Jon Matlack shut out the Giants, 4-0, on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Jon pitched a 4-hitter and got Willie McCovey on a called third strike for the final out in the ninth.

The only run Jon would need was scored in the first inning when Jim Fregosi hit into a double play with the bases loaded after Sam McDowell had walked the first three batters of the game. Also, Bud Harrelson hit a triple that scored both Wayne Garrett and Matlack in the second inning.

Grandma and I enjoyed every minute of this game. It was a great day to be at Shea!

This was the first baseball game I ever attended. Me and my dad. I was seven years old. I remember seeing the grass for the first time - so green. Most of my memories of this day have faded. But my love for my dad and the Mets have only grown stronger.

This is a great site. I only remembered the final score of the game and our opponent. Now I feel like I have an anniversary that I can share with my family forever.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
