METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 13, 1980 GAME:

Was at this game with my dad and remember there was a buzz at Shea. The victory the night before had brought the Mets one game under .500 (a big deal for mid-June).

There was a huge crowd, in part because it was a promotional date. Kids got a vinyl poncho which I proudly wore. Never mind that it was hot, and sunny, and I was sweating like mad...

Of course the Mets lost, and the rest of the season was a downer.

The day after Steve Henderson's dramatic walk-off home run. The stadium was filled with excitement. My dad took me to this game as one of my graduation gifts from grammar school. Nothing dramatic about this one, I can tell ya!

This Friday night game was actually the night BEFORE Steve Henderson's walk-off homer, not the night after. (I think both of the earlier posts about this game belong under the Sunday, June 15 game.)

On this night Vida Blue shut down the Mets, allowing just four hits and one unearned run to improve to 9-2 on the year (he finished the year 14-10).

Milt May had a fourth inning homer off Ray Burris, and it was the 9,000th home run in the history of the Giants' franchise.

Example One
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!
