This was my first major league game, and I went with my Mom. I was a six year old Yankees fan, but my mom wasn't willing to drive to the South Bronx in 1976 (can't blame her) so we went to Shea. My only vivid memory of the game came from the Old Timers Day ceremony. Joe DiMaggio, in his Yankees uniform walked onto the field through the center field gate. He was accompanied by Mickey Mantle, Duke Snider, and Willie Mays (in a Mets uniform).

I don't recall this being an Old Timers Day. I do remember Ceasar Cedeno taking Seaver downtown into the left field loge in the first inning for the game's only run. Andujar threw a complete game shutout for the 'stros.

I went to this game with my parents when I was 15. I do remember it being Old Timers Day. We sat down the 3rd base line in field reserve seats. I actually remember the 1st inning home run hit by Cedeno. Other than that hit, Seaver pitched a gem, but Andujar shut the Mets down. I was so disappointed that the Mets could not muster up a couple of runs to win the game for Seaver.

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.
