I grew up in New York and attended this game, the first Met win at Shea Stadium. It was a cold and blustery day, but my bud and I didn't care. Jim Hickman cracked a solid 2 run HR to left early on and from that point everyone present had a sense that this would be THE DAY. Jackson finished up Mazeroski was left in the on deck circle and we all went home happy that we had been a small part of Mets history.

One correction to an earlier post on this, the first Mets victory at Shea: there were no home runs in the game.

The Mets took a 4-0 lead in the fourth inning when Rod Kanehl and Ron Hunt each singled in two runs. The Mets added two more in the sixth on a single by Al Moran that drove in Joe Christopher, then Moran scored on a Dick Smith double.

Meanwhile, Al Jackson scattered six hits and struck out six, including fanning Willie Stargell three times and Donn Clendenon twice.

Joe Christopher was the first Met ever to steal a base at Shea in this game.

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!
