Surprised out of all the memories here, no one remembers this one. This was "Midget Met Day", not sure if they ever tried this again. I believe the entire upper deck was filled with schoolkids. I myself was a fourth grader. They gave out those miniature bats at the gate, and kids were beating each other senseless with them in the bathrooms. To make things even more kid friendly, John Stearns and Gary Carter had a collision at home plate (both being catchers I can't remember who which was running), they got into an all out brawl, setting a great example for the kids in attendance. This one I will always remember.

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!
