METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 2, 1963 GAME:

I remember as a child going to the Polo Grounds for a double header. I thought that the Mets won both games with walk off Home Runs by Duke Snider. I would appreciate if I could get the box scores of both games played on June 2nd to see if I was correct

To follow up on the post of January 14, 2002, Mathew--you were close. In game one Duke had a leadoff homer in the fourth inning and the Mets won when Ron Hunt hit a ball to left field that Jerry Lynch couldn't handle and Rod Kanehl scored the winning run.

In game two, Jim Hickman hit a walk-off homer for the tenth inning win and the sweep.

I recall seeing a picture from this game in which Choo Choo Coleman looks out by a mile at home, with Smokey Burgess tagging him with his throwing arm (ball in hand) about 6 feet directly in front of home (and Jimmie Piersall behind home cheering Coleman on), but the caption says he was called safe. The play-by- play indicated Coleman scored from first on a triple by Neal. Since Burgess was replaced by Brand as catcher that inning, it does appear that Burgess argued the call and was thrown out of the game. Does anyone know why Neal was credited with a triple when Coleman was nearly (and why the call?) thrown out at home? The Daily News had this picture, if anyone still has a scrapbook.

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.

Thank you!
