I went to this game with my entire family. All seven of us were at Shea on a hot Wednesday afternoon. Before the game, we were treated to a 2-inning softball game (or was it 3 innings?) played between the wives of the Mets and Phillies players. I remember Angela Jones (Cleon's wife) hitting the ball all the way to the outfield grass in left.

In the regular game, Cleon had a shot of his own - a home run over the 410-foot mark in dead center field! Rusty Staub also homered and Ted Martinez had a run-scoring double.

Harry Parker, who was having a rough season, shut out the Phillies for eight innings. A Dave Cash triple in the ninth led to two runs and Parker's being taken out. He still got a well- deserved win, though.

Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:

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!
