METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 1973 GAME:

Matt Ward

This was my first visit to Shea Stadium! My Yankee fan father finally broke down and took me and my brother to a Mets game. We sat on the third base side of the mezzanine level. Until finding this website, all I remembered was that it was late July of '73 Vs. Pittsburgh and that the Mets lost a low scoring game. I had forgotten who pitched for the Mets but did remember that Dock Ellis started for the Pirates. My dad has also told me that on that final night of July with the Mets at the bottom of the NL East, I told him that the Mets would win the division that year! And they did!

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!
