METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 10, 1982 GAME:

Hank M
April 22, 2007
Dave Kingman hit a home run in this game, but it wasn't a typical Kingman blast. This one was the inside-the-park kind. It was quite a thing to watch!

In the eighth inning, Dave lifted a very high shallow fly down the right field line. George Hendrick ran slowly for it, not appearing to give it much effort (perhaps he couldn't find it.) The ball landed just inside the line, bounced very high on the artificial turf and went to the right field corner. As Hendrick ran after it, Dave ran around the bases. By the time the ball got to the infield, he had circled the diamond - without a play being made on him.

This hit provided the margin of victory over a team that was headed for a division title and eventual World Championship. It also helped Dave to become the first Met ever to win a National League home run title, though this was not the usual way he hit them.

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!
