God, I remember this game well. It was memorial day, 1981. I was 8. I remember Kong hitting a grand slam and the Mets jumping out early. I remember the 13-3 final. It was the first time I was really aware of what was going on at a baseball game. The sights, sounds, the scoreboard, and yes, the Grand Slam, all made for a great afternoon at Shea.

Not only was it a great Memorial day win for the Mets with a Dave Kingman grand slam, but while sitting on the first base side in the mezzanine, I caught my first (and only) foul ball. It was off the bat of future hall-of-famer Mike Schmidt.

My son, Neil, was born near the end of the game on May 25, 1981. I was watching the game with the delivering doctor in the doctor waiting room in the maternity ward. The doctor tried to delay the delivery until the end of the game, but finally had to do it during the 7th inning sretch. I guess Neil, an avid Mets fan, wanted to watch the Mets win in person.

Watched the game in my family's apartment on a black and white tv (we didn't have the money for a color set) on a sunny Memorial Day off from school as we ordered pizza and watched Kingman hit a grand salami off the defending world champions.

After this game, Doug Flynn was still hitting .300 on the season! He would proceed to go 9-100, which has to be one of the most epic streaks of hitting futility by a position player. Ever. Seriously, how many non-pitchers have had fewer hits over a 100-AB span? But dude hit .300 for two months from the 8-hole. You try it.

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.
