The one vivid memory I have of this game was the 6th inning, in which George Foster hit a laser over the left field fence for a home run. I believe Tom Niedenfuer gave it up to him. The next batter, I'll never forget, was Ray Knight, who was plunked by Niedenfuer, thus starting an impressive bench-clearing brawl. Was it possible that Foster showed up Niedenfuer in the previous at bat after his blast? I was never sure why it was started in the first place. Maybe someone else can give me the answer. All I know is that it was the last important hit by Foster as a Met. I had forgotten that Ron Darling had gone the distance in this game, as did the rest of the Met starters.

I think this was an NBC game of the week, Vin Scully doing the call.

Not sure about that, since I was 8, but I definitely remember the brawl. After Knight got plunked, he rushed Niedenfuer, gave him a quick punch, then Niedenfuer tackled him and Knight fell flat on his back. Ouch!

Possibly the first Met game I ever saw.

This was the very first Mets game I saw in person. I was 9 and I will never forget the smell of the grass and how green it was. The grand slam followed by the brawl was an amazing way to kick off the hundreds of games I have attended since. I'll never forget Ray Knight's bright red face in the middle of the melee, so bright red I was able to spot it from my mezzanine seat.

Correcting an earlier post, I did some research and this game was on Channel 9. This is the first game I clearly remember watching, only because of the brawl. I was a big WWF fan at the time, and watching Ray Knight run out there and fight Tom Niedenfuer was like watching the Junk Yard Dog take on Tito Santana. I remember being amazed by it, and thinking that it was better than wrestling because it was real.

One of four games I attended that year as a 17 year old, I was a huge Foster fan dating back to his time with Cincy and very happy for him after the grand slam. He was rarely cheered the way he was after that HR. The brawl stands out of course; I can still see Knight running out there from my vantage in the mezzanine behind home plate.

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!
