Colts surrender just seven hits in sweeping a twinbill from the Mets, 5-4 and 5-0. Turk Farrell goes the distance on four hits in the opener while fanning eleven. Chris Zachary and Hal Woodeshick combine for a three-hit shutout in the nightcap. Teenager Rusty Staub and Johnny Weekly go deep in the second game.

This was the second game of a doubleheader that hosted the Mets' first-ever "Banner Day," with the parade of banners taking place on the field between games.

It was my one and only trip to the Polo Grounds, and a disappointingly quiet day at the plate for the home team. (Imagine Ed Kranepool as a leadoff hitter!) I did, however, get to see Choo Choo Coleman hit a homer in person--and how many fans can actually claim to have had that experience?

Living 100 miles north of NYC, I would eventually attend thirteen Mets losses before finally seeing them win a game in person. Years later, I was one of the lucky ones who attended (and brought sod home from) Game 5 on October 16, 1969--which more than made up for the frustration of all those earlier losses.

I'll never know what inspired my dad to take me to a Mets game in 1963, but I'll always be grateful for the opportunity to have seen a couple games at the Polo Grounds and to have had him there to share the experience with me.

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!
