This game featured the brawl at Candlestick Park mentioned in the Elio Chacon memory. Writers at the time called it one of the best brawls in baseball history as two fights broke out at once: Orlando Cepeda, who'd just been beaned, charged Roger Craig after Elio Chacon, who'd just been spiked on a pickoff play, punched Willie Mays in the head and was summarily bodyslammed.

Mays then took on Felix Mantilla before Gil Hodges stopped him.

Chacon was blamed for starting it and was the only one fined, though it was said that Cepeda's beaning was ordered by Casey Stengel.

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!
