My granddad took me to this game, we sat first base box seats. Kingman belted a long HR to left field, Koosman pitched great, and my beloved Mets won. I was just a kid, mesmerized by being in Shea Stadium, as my family had moved to Michigan. It was the last game I ever attended with my granddad, an ultimate Mets fan from Flushing, who died not long after. What a treasured memory. I am a Mets fan forever.

I was at this game as well. My first memory of this game was that the Mets had been shut out for 35 innings(!) going into it, but finally broke the spell, as Jesus Alou "drove" in the a run in the first inning. I was only 9 at the time and remember Alou driving in the run, but the box score here shows a three base error by Brock on the play. Query: does anyone recall what Brock did to botch the play?

My other memory is that as we left they put a note on the scoreboard that Koosman had just won his 100th career game.

The funny thing about this "memory" is that this game has always stuck in my mind, so I decided to use this web site to find it. I figured I could narrow the search by only looking for home games Alou drove in a run (how many could there be?). In reviewing the box score, he clearly got no RBI for the play I remember, but did get one later in the game--had that not happened, I would not have found this box score and assumed I dreamt the whole thing!! [before anyone says I easily could have found it by looking up Kooz's 100th win, I didn't realize they were the same game until I saw Koosman got the win and started thinking that would have been around the right time in his career, did the math...and voila--two memories for the price of one. Kudos once again to this excellent web site for helping me relive a small part of my youth.]

I also remember Gene Clines starting and they finally scored in the first inning. It was a rainy day and Wendel Ladner of the Nets had been killed in a plane crash that afternoon coming into I think JFK!

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!
