My very first game, age 8. I asked if we'd see Babe Ruth play, the adults laughed.Stared out at CF all day, looked like another galaxy away....Ate peanuts, shells and all....Don Demeter hit a HR....

Another famous day in early Mets history---Jimmy Piersall hits his 100th career home run off Dallas Green in the first game of this doubleheader, and Jimmy runs the bases backwards. This was the only homer Piersall hit in the National League.

A few weeks later the Mets release Piersall, who goes on to play sporadically with the Angels until 1967.

Piersall did run the bases counterclockwise. He just back pedaled as he did it. It did not endear him to Casey. He lasted less than two months as a Met.

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!
