METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 15, 1983 GAME:

This was the night I knew the Mets were going to become something special in the very near future. And it had nothing to do with the game itself.

Before the game the message board flashed the news that the Mets had traded Neil Allen and Rick Ownbey to St. Louis for Keith Hernandez.

This was the type of elite position player other teams seemed to have, but never the Mets.

One of my top-10 favorite games ever at Shea. And of course it wasn't because of what happened on the field. This was the night a franchise was transformed.

It happened before the game. My dad and I were there, at a three-quarter empty Shea, when a regular we knew, sitting near us told us about a wild rumor he heard - that the Mets were about to land Keith Hernandez from the Cardinals. No way, we both thought. Why would the Cardinals do that?

My dad gave me some change and told me to run out to the pay phone and call Sportsphone (900) 976- 1313 (Remember the jingle on the TV commercials? And current SportsCenter anchor Steve Levy doing those updates?) Anyway, I made the call, found out the news and by the time I was running up the ramp to our loge box seats, I could hear the cheering. Then I saw the message on Diamond Vision: "The Mets have just acquired star 1B Keith Hernandez from the Cardinals for pitchers Neil Allen and Rick Ownbey." And then hearing Bob Murphy on the radio that night after the game: "The Mets lost a game tonight, but have gained a superstar."

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.
