At a Holy Name Breakfast earlier in the year, my family won tickets to this game. This was the 10th anniversary of the 1969 Champs and I remember some Mets like Seaver and McGraw speaking on the public address because they were still playing. I remember we had bad seats in the loge; the sun was really in our eyes that day. A few years ago I aquired a video of the Old Timers Day that day. What a treat that was to go back and relive that memory. Lindsey Nelson who was in his first year as a Giants announcer after leaving the Mets after 1978 participated in the festivities.

I still have my ticket stub for this game. We had Mezz Box ($6.00), pretty good tickets on what I remember was a beautiful day. All these years the only thing I could remember about this game was that Tom Hausman started for the Mets. Now, after seeing the boxscore, I realize why Hausman's performance stayed with me all these years.

This was Old Timers Day, and the Mets pulled off one of the funniest stunts I've seen at Shea...

Comedian Garrett Morris was in his Saturday Night Live heyday, when he Chico Escuela ("Baseball been berry, berry good to me.")

During the Old Timers game, Morris was in a Mets uniform, and when someone got a hit, he ran onto the field to the announcement, "Now pinch running for the Mets, no. 5, Chico Escuela."

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!
