I remember going to this game with my parents and best friend Jimmy. We had box seats from our friend Murray, right along the first base line. I was 7 years old and began learning how to keep score for the first time that night. Jimmy was already a pro thanks to his Strat-O-Matic baseball games with his dad, so he was teaching me how to do it.

My clearest memories of Shea that night are that Terry Leach got rocked so bad that he threw his glove into the crowd in frustration when he was pulled from the game, and it was extremely cold in the later innings. People around us had blankets, but my mom was freezing and lamenting the fact that she only brought a denim jacket.

I was also fairly confident that Bob Ojeda pitched. By searching this outstanding database with the few clues I had (e.g., night game early in the '88 season), I was able to pinpoint this specific game. Thanks so much UltimateMets.com for providing such a wonderful resource for true Met fans!

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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!
