METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 29, 1988 GAME:

A horrible rainy day turned into a one-hitter by David Cone. I believe the Padres got a 3rd inning double by Tony Gwynn past a diving Keith Hernandez. Gregg Jeffries hits his first major league homer.

Brian, Tony Gwynn's double came with one out in the fourth inning for the only hit off Coney. He walked two batters and struck out eight while improving to 14-3.

In addition to his first HR, Jefferies also doubled and tripled in the game.

Len Dykstra was ejected in the second inning by home plate umpire Jim Quick after Dykstra was caught looking.

This was my first ever baseball game. I was six years old, and my father took me with my brothers. I've been a diehard Mets fan ever since. I remember being so excited at being there for Gregg Jefferies first career HR. Of course, he didn't turn into the superstar everyone thought he would be.

I was also at this game and, if I recall correctly, Mookie struck out to end the game and was booed because Gregg was on deck and everyone was hoping to see him hit for the cycle.

One of four one hitters I've been at (Matlack '74, Seaver '76 and Seo/Weathers/Benitiez '03).

This would be a GREAT game for SNY to pull out of the vault if they have it.

Cone threw a masterful one hitter... Jefferies hits his first homer (a HUGE deal at the time obviously) and the Mets begin to close out the last stretch of the season in fantastic fashion, leading to a great and fun September.

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.
