METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 14, 1977 GAME:

My 3rd major league game! It was a beautiful spring Saturday for my Dad to take me to the big ballpark. Koosman was honored in a ceremony before the game for his pitching performance in 1976. I think it was for 20 wins. I remember HRs by Reggie Smith and Rick Monday. There was a picture in the NY Sunday Times the next day of Koosman getting the award and I could see my face and my Dad's sitting in the Loge.

My first MLB game (and first professional sporting event). I was a month shy of my 7th birthday. Gorgeous spring day. We sat in box seats between 3rd base and LF foul pole. I was a Yankees fan (my dad was Mets fan). No hope of going to see a Yankees game because my dad didn't want to take his wife and two little kids to the Bronx!!

Reggie Smith homered to RF in the 1st and the ball barely cleared the wall. I remember my dad griping that if Dave Kingman were playing RF (instead of Mike Vail), he would have robbed Smith of the homer (his rationale being that Kingman was much taller than Vail). Kingman started the game at 1st base.

I also recall that we were sitting near some teenage girls who loved Lee Mazzilli and each time he came to the plate, one of them would encourage him to shake his rear while waiting for the pitch.

I also recall buying a $1 Mets Yearbook with Jerry Koosman on the cover (he'd won 20 games the previous year). I still have the yearbook.

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.
