METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 14, 1964 GAME:

My recollection (40 years ago) is that this was the first game of a Sunday double-header, and that a prodigious home run to centerfield in maybe the 5th inning by Richie (later Dick) Allen, then a rookie, broke the game open. The shot hit the light standard in old Connie Mack Stadium to the left of the scoreboard above the top of the 32 foot fence, and bounced back well toward the infield. Outfielders, baserunners, and umpires were running in circles trying to figure out what had happened, and the crowd buzzed.

I was 16, from exurban Philadelphia, neither a Phillies nor a Mets fan, but got both teams' radio and TV broadcasts. Game was sold out, stood behind the last row of seats behind third base. The Phillies were unexpectedly in contention in June, and the Mets were a novelty who drew from New York. Don't specifically know if this was that game, but I think it was. Allen was the scariest hitter of that (60s) generation.

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!
