My dad passed away on Monday April 18, 2005, and this game has special meaning because it was my first baseball game. I remember buying tickets from a scalper for I think 15 dollars and sitting in the left field bleachers not being able to see practically anything and Koufax pitched. In the second game we moved to seats behind the plate and saw the Mets pull off a triple play if my memory serves me correctly.

The former Brooklyn Dodgers made their first appearance in New York as the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first game of this Memorial Day doubleheader at the Polo Grounds.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 10-0 lead on their way to a 13-6 win. Sandy Koufax pitched a complete game despite giving up 6 runs and 13 hits. One time Brooklyn hero Gil Hodges had a home run off Sandy in the fourth inning for the first run ever allowed in New York by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Other notable New York firsts from this game for the LA Dodgers: First at bat-Maury Wills. First hit-Wills (leadoff single to right). First out- Jim Gilliam. First run scored-Ron Fairly. First RBI-Frank Howard. First home run-Willie Davis. First inside the park home run-Maury Wills.

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.
