This was the first major league game I ever attended. My recollection is that the Reds only run came on a homer by Johnny Bench that went into the parking lot.

This is the second game I ever went to, and the first one I recall.

Two memories stand out:

1. Bob Apodaca started and won. 2. Pete Rose was booed like crazy.

And I got the autograph of The Sign Man, who sat me in his box seat when Rose batted, in order to hold up, I suppose, an anti-Rose sign.

This was the first game I ever attended. I was 7 years old. I went with my Father, brother and Uncle.

My Uncle passed away several years ago. My Father has ALS and may not be around much longer.

I sat between home and the Mets dugout. I clearly remember Bench's HR. I also remember Hahn's. I began following Hahn's career because I thought it was so cool that he hit a dinger while I was there. I didn't (couldn't) follow it very long.

I also remember a kid with his father (I suppose) who seats were near ours not only catching a foul ball...but catching two!

I thought it was just a given that I would get a few. Still waiting for my first foul ball. 30 years and counting...

Great web site fellas.

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!
