METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1979 GAME:

Andy from Rego Park

The Mets scored a club record 10 runs in a single inning, including an inside-the-park three-run homer by Doug Flynn when Cesar Geronimo misplayed his fly to deep center. Possibly the highlight of the season.

I was at this game and remember Flynn's inside- the-parker and the 10-run inning.

Although the game was in June, it was fireworks night and after Flynn hit the homer they lit up big 'LETS GO METS!' sign made behind the left center field fence.

The crowd went nutty.

The first time the Mets ever scored ten or more runs in an inning. They would not do so again until 6-30-2000 in the celebrated come-from-behind victory against the Braves.

Attended game while on a biz trip to NYC on my birthday. Approached a 'scalper' who was negotiating with another who was going overboard low-balling. The scalper was exceedingly frustrated, turned to me for a different offer. As I mentioned it was my birthday, he gave me the ticket for free and said "Happy Birthday". The ticket was behind home plate, up a bit, but a great game view. After the 5th inning was completed, a total of 15 runs scored, 10 by the home team, I took a picture knowing that this was a rare feat. Probably the first time ever to a Mets game. Maybe have seen them once or twice since.

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.
