METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 8, 1975 GAME:

Seaver outduels Carlton on opening day. I went to this game with my dad. It was cloudy. That's about all I remember.

In January 1975 I had met a wonderful girl on a ski trip, and being the romantic that I am, I told her that I would take her to Opening Day at Shea. We went, and Tom Seaver won as usual. We went to six more games that year, and the Mets won them all. I could not let this beautiful woman get away! We were married in September 1978 and are the proud parents of four lovely Met fans.

Hey Dennis (the poster above me): that may be the best post I've seen on the UMD.

Hey Jon (also a poster above: I too attended this game with my Dad. Can still see Kingman's bomb as it appeared from our upper deck seats. What a drive.

Can also see Torre's basehit to win it in the ninth.

What a great box score - Seaver and Carlton pitching cowboy-style before the days of slavish devotion to pitch counts.

If I'm not mistaken, Joe Torre had the game winning hit in this one, the only good thing he did as a Met.

The first Met game I ever went to see. It was cold. I got into trouble next day in school because I skipped school to go to the game.

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.
