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

Went to this game with my dad, and got to see the penultimate home run of Willie Mays' career. A very happy memory.

Willie's HR came in the bottom of the seventh, a three run shot off veteran RHP Diego Segui. It turned a 4-3 Met lead into a 7-3 Met lead and that was the final score. Willie would hit his final homer two weeks later.

Jon Matlack pitched a complete game, allowing ten hits and striking out eleven. John Milner had to leave the game in the bottom of the first when he tripled to right field and was hit by the throw to third base.

The win still left the Mets in last place, 8.5 games behind the first place Cardinals.

Felix Millan also collected his 1,000th career hit in this game as well.

I'm from New Jersey and it was my first Mets game. I had just turned nine years old and can vividly remember John Milner taking the throw on the side of the head between second and third. I also remember Willie Mays' 3-run blast.

I think one of the most visual images from that day 32 years ago, was that my step-father was standing on his seat (3rd base side box seats) and a foul ball was lined about 10 feet over his head. (And everyone else's!) I can recall it like it just happened.

I've been a Mets fan ever since and will be seeing them next Friday at Dodger Stadium (I'm in the Air Force and stationed in California). Thanks for the opportunity to share my memory.

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.
