METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 1, 1963 GAME:

My second trip to the Polo Grounds, and my first with my dad and younger brother (his 6th birthday). Bob Friend no-hits the Mets into the sixth or seventh innning. The Mets get an infield hit, and even though they're down by a touchdown or more, thunderous cries of "Let's Go Mets" erupt. Banners, streamers, horns, pigeons ; circus-like atmosphere for a young man in from the Jersey suburbs. One of the greatest memories of my youth. The Pirates hit four or five homers, and looked like they belonged in another league. The next day the Mets beat them twice. As Chuck Berry once said, it goes to show you never can tell. I treasure the memories of that day and those times.

I went to this game with my father, my Uncle Sam, and my cousin Jeff. I was 7 1/2. We sat in the bleachers and it was a hot day.

What I remember is that the the clubhouse runways were adjacent to the bleachers so the players had to pass by the stands to get onto the field. We got a few autographs on my scorecard, which had a huge Mr. Met on it. I remember getting Ron Hunt and a coach, Ernie White. My cousin Jeff also got Chico Fernandez and Jimmy Piersall, who had JUST joined the Mets after being traded from the Senators for Gil Hodges, who became that team's manager.

My favorite player going to that game was Ed Kranepool. Look at the lineup, how many of the Mets were still on the team a few months later. Krane was still on the Mets when I got out of law school in 1979! Krane was still wearing his original uniform number, 21, which he wore until Warren Spahn joined the team for the 1965 season. Number 7 was a shortstop by the name of Amado Samuel.

Although the Mets got beaten badly, by Met killer, Bob Friend, I was rewarded when Kranepool hit a ball about ten feet and, believe it or not, beat out a hit.

It was day I will never forget!

The first of Willie Stargell's 60 homers against the Mets.

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.
