This was the Monday night game where Phil Niekro hit a line shot in left field. Dave Kingman dove for the ball and injured his thumb. He was out for the next month or two. I remember as I was sitting in the mezzanine. Kingman wound up losing the NL Home Run title to Mike Schmidt by one.

I was at this game with my Dad in the upper deck along the right field side. (Gee, it seems every time I've attended a game with seats along the right field side, bad things happen to the Mets!) As of this writing, this was my last time at Shea.

Other than the Mets losing and the injury to Kingman, I remember a play involving Mike Vail. I remember one inning where there was, I guess, a runner on second. I watched Mike Vail, who was in right field, imitating throws to the plate in between pitches. Lo and behold! The batter (who it was I don't remember!) hits a single to right and Mike throws the ball over the head of the catcher for an error.

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!
