I sat in the bleachers at Wrigley for this game, which was not noteworthy other than being the first of two games in two different cities played that day by Joel Youngblood. He was traded during the game to Montreal and played later the same evening for the Expos in Philadelphia. He got hits in both games!

Amazing he was able to get out of O'Hare that quickly.

I recall listening to this game on radio, hearing that Joel Youngblood was removed during the middle of the afternoon game at Wrigley Field because he was traded to the Montréal Expos. Later that night, I was watching sports highlights on TV when I saw a reply of Youngblood's first hit with the Expos in their night game against the Phillies at Veterans Stadium.

The Joel Youngblood, two-team two-hit day is what everybody remembers about that day. For me, one other thing as well... My daughter was born that day!! Around my house that trumps Youngblood!

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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.

Thank you!
