Duke Snider rips a 3-run homer off Diomedes Olivo in the 9th inning for a walk off victory. I can still hear Lindsey Nelson's call; the game was televised.

Most people likely have seen the clip of Snider's game-winning home run from the "25th Anniversary" video. Not only was I thrilled to see it, but I also was encouraged that it SURVIVED! (BTW, the video also features video game clips of Carlton Willey's grand slam and Gil Hodges' 2000th hit.)

The Cardinals' starting pitcher in this game was future Met Ron Taylor. Ron allowed just two hits and a walk through eight innings and was nursing a 2-0 lead going to the bottom of the ninth. The Cardinal runs had scored on first inning back-to- back doubles by Curt Flood and Dick Groat, and a fourth inning homer by Ken Boyer.

After retirning Jim Hickman (batting for Jimmy Piersall) to lead off the ninth, Taylor gave up a pinch-single to Frank Thomas. Rod Kanehl came in to run for Thomas. Ron Hunt drew a walk, and Cardinal manager Johnny Keane went to the mound, waving in LHP Diomedes Olivo to face Duke Snider. With the Duke up, catcher Gene Oliver allowed a passed ball, moving the tying runs into scoring position. Duke then hit a three-run homer to win the game, 3-2.

Olivo would get into just two more games in his major league career.

This was the first baseball game I ever went to. After Snider's walk off home run, the place went crazy. I wondered if this happened every game. My father said, son, meet the Mets. That was enough for me...a true fan forever.

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.
