This was the first baseball game I ever went to. I remember going down to the field and trying to get autographs, Gaylord Perry passed us by, and I wound up getting Luis Gomez to sign a piece of paper for me. During the game the fans were riding Lee Mazzilli and Randy Jones gave up a home run to Dale Murphy that I think is still in the air. I remember the Mets got the bases loaded and Kingman came up to pinch hit. Everyone was so load and excited, this was my first great live baseball moment, unfortunately Kingman struck out, and it was on a pitch that bounced in front of the plate. I don't know if he was trying to fool the other team or what. This is my first live game baseball memory.

Mustve been a promotion or something because this was my first Mets game too. My dad turned me into a Mets fan that day. (I was a Yankee fan for 1980 and most of 81.) He knew the place real well and we got autos of a lot of the players. It really meant a lot to a 10-year-old kid at his first game. I still have the ball, the topper was meeting Mookie Wilson. As a kid, anybody with the name Mookie, you remember that name forever. He was extra nice and wrote on my program, "Wish we would've won your first game, but we'll get them next time for you." It was an awesome day.

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!
