I was 8 years old when I attended this game.It was one of the few times that my biological father came around to spend time with me. He took my mother, one of his nephews and myself. My Mom still talks about it once in a while recalling the great seats (third base field level) as well as a trip to the Diamond Club.

As for the game, I had always remembered the final score and that Jim McAndrew had started for the Mets. Also that the Expo run had come on a steal of home. But for all these years I had always thought that it was Ron Hunt who had made the steal. Not Clyde Mashore.

I have been visiting some of the other games I attended in my childhood. I find it interesting that Mets "closer" Tug McGraw would pitch 2, 3 or sometimes even 4 innings. How times have changed.

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!
