My first road trip to see a Mets game. Some friends and I decided to make a pilgrimage to Pittsburgh for Ralph Kiner Night. Ralph and his wife circled the field in a convertible. His wife saw the banner we had brought and pointed it out to him. I have to say the people of Pittsburgh were great. Very friendly. The game was great too. Hernandez' Grand Slam was the big blow.

I was a freshman at Carnegie Mellon University. A friend of mine and I, both Mets fans from Jersey, took the bus to Three Rivers, bought tickets from a scalper (2 tix for $1!), and sat in the right field seats (seat #13, I remember).

The highlight of the game was Keith Hernandez hitting a grand slam home run right into my arms. As it approached, time slowed down and I thought, "Holy Cow it's coming right at me." I didn't catch the ball -- it bounced off my arm -- but I did leap over the seat to retrieve it before anyone else could get there.

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!
