The 26th Met

This game was played on the day I was born. Glad to see the Mets won. This was a better day for the Mets and N.Y. for what was to come exactly 38 years later.

This was the final win for the New York Mets at the Polo Grounds and the final loss for the Giants' franchise at Coogan's Bluff.

The Mets had seven more home games in 1963 after this game but lost them all. Then they finished the season with a nine game road trip.

The Mets jumped on Jack Sanford and scored two in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Duke Snider and an infield out by Pumpsie Green. They added two more in the second on a bases-loaded single by Tim Harkness.

Al Jackson pitched a complete game for the Mets, allowing an unearned run in the sixth and an Orlando Cepeda home run in the eighth.

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.
