METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 19, 1972 GAME:

I'm pretty sure this is the game I brought my Super-8 movie camera to. It was a Saturday afternoon and I was sitting in my Uncle Kenny's box seats about 8 rows behind the first-base coach's box. I've got speedster Al Oliver rounding the bases on a triple and Clemente jogging out to right-field on film. Pretty cool.

Dave Shaw, if you are still reading these boards, I looked up Al Oliver's career stats against the Mets, and the only triple he hit at Shea Stadium while Roberto Clemente was still alive was on Sunday afternoon April 16, 1972, the second game of the 1972 season. The triple came with two outs and nobody on in the eighth inning off Jon Matlack.

The September 19 game was a Tuesday night at Shea.

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.

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.

Thank you!
