METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1962 GAME:

The Mets lost a doubleheader to the Dodgers that day. It was my first time at the Polo Grounds. Koufax started the first game for the Dodgers and Drysdale pitched the second. Maury Wills hit 2 home runs in the first game. An inside the park and a 'Bobby Thompson' short porch home run to left. Koufax also hit a home run. The Mets pulled their first triple play in the nite cap.

The first-ever Met triple play was in the top of the 6th of the nightcap of the doubleheader. Willie Davis hit a liner that Chacon caught and flipped to Neal at 2B who flipped to Hodges at 1B. Maury Wills and Jim Gilliam were the runners caught off base.

To clear up what jroth said, Johnny Podres pitched the 2nd game, (not Drysdale) and as he was walking to the clubhouse when he was removed from the game , a fan leaned over the bleacher screen and spit in his face. Also, Koufax did not hit a HR in the first game. It was quite day at Coogans Bluff even though our Mets lost 2 games to the team that broke the hearts of all Brooklynites in 1957.

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.

Thank you!
