Banner day twi-night doubleheader,also the first time I sat below the Upper Deck at Shea (loge Sec 3 Row 3). The players looked almost like they did on TV rather than those distant specks darting in all directions I was used to. First game goes 18 innings thanks to a HR by Don Money. The fans in left field left the game to assemble outside the centerfield wall in the 7th inning. Where they waited...and waited...and waited. Lasting memory other than Money's HR was Dave Schneck's triple in the 1st. I told everyone within earshot that Schneck was going to be the Met's CF of the future, and would possibly be in the HOF: predictions I later made about Dan Norman and Gregg Jeffries . What do I know, I'm the only investor to LOSE money in the late 90's market.

Second game was a treat watching true HOFers Steve Carlton and Willie Mays face off. Carlton his 21st of 27 victories in his incredible season.

It was a twi-night doubleheader and my brother Tom and friend Frank DiCola and I made a banner and had great seats down the left field line with my sister Kathy and my Dad. We went outside after the 7th inning and the Phillies tied it up and it went 18 innings. We finally went back inside to see the last inning. The Mets won and we got to parade on the field. My Dad made us leave after the 2nd inning of the 2nd game and I only got to see Willie Mays get up once. The Mets sent all the people involved in banner night free tickets for a game against the Expos in September.

I was at this game as well with my sister and our proud banner! They held Banner Night between games of a "scheduled" twilight doubleheader against the Phils (ah, remember those?). The first game lasted 18 innings, the Mets winning 3-2. What was funny was that we were told to huddle under the stands leading to the outfield with our banners sometime around the 7th inning, but we couldn't see the game!! We were way back in line and didn't want to lose our place, so we missed the ending. When we heard a huge roar echo through the stadium, we knew the Mets had won. Very funny night. I was 11 years old.

We had Loge seats overlooking the Phillies bullpen so I watched Carlton warm up for game 2. I was absolutely amazed how loud he popped the catcher's glove!

And yes, I also remember getting those freebies for a Mets- Expos in September.

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.
