METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 3, 1973 GAME:

There is an audio copy of this game available and if you want to listen to the LOW point of 1973, this may have been it. McAndrew was awful, but Tug may have set a record in this one: three pitches, six runs. That's a grand slam, double and two-run homer on CONSECUTIVE pitches! It was the career night of Bob Bailey. I would love to hear ANY memories of fans who either watched this game on TV or listened to it live. It is incredible to think that a little over three months later, after this complete SHELLACKING, that the Mets were NL Champs.

I am 99% sure that I watched this game on TV. I remember this game because of the rout, and the only detail that I can recall is that Duffy Dyer hit a late inning home run into the left field stands to bring the Mets total to 8.

This memory is for Barry F. I'll tell you how I remember this game. 1973 was my third year as a baseball fan, and a Mets fan. I was 10 years old and living in Riverhead, N.Y. in this tiny one-bedroom apartment. I was in bed at night listening to the game on the radio (I don't think the game was on T.V., but I could be wrong). Bob Bailey became an enemy for life for what he did to the Mets that night, but I also feared him as a kid for the same reason. Anyway, just a small memory prompt from long ago. Funny...the things you remember.

I believe at the time this was a record for most runs scored against the Mets in a game. It was eventually surpassed by the infamous 26 run game in Philly in 1985. I agree it was the low point of the 1973 season.

I was at this game!!! My family went to Canada on vacation this year and the highlight for me was a real major league game! Jarry Park was awesome, barely a double A park in today's standards, but not a bad seat in the house. Although the Mets got shellacked, it was still unforgettable for that 10 year old boy, me.

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.
