I was at this game and Hawk Taylor crushed a 3 run home run off of Koufax.

Funny how the memory can play tricks on you. I recalled Hawk Taylor's homer and thought it was in the Tug McGraw victory over Koufax. But that victory came the following year on 8-26-65. In this game, the Dodgers came from behind in the late innings to bail Sandy out.

Before the game Willie Davis and a several other Dodgers sang happy birthday to Casey Stengel.

I believe this was my first game at Shea -- and my first MLB game as well. Sat in upper deck (3rd base side) with my father, my grandfather and my brother. I too remember it was Casey's birthday. Al Jackson and Mr. Met presented him with a birthday cake at home plate.

I should add that this was the first time that Koufax did not beat the Mets. In 20 starts, he had a 17-2 record against the Mets and one no-decision - this game. He lost games in 1965 and 1966 against Tug McGraw who won the first one and got a no-decision in the rematch.

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.
