This was my first baseball game and the game that made me into a Mets fan. In the midst of a dreadful season I went to a game and they won! I remember that it was blisteringly hot, we had box seats (how'd we get them anyway?) and I remember being very happy that I got the Mets yearbook (long gone). Can't wait for the box score but I'm happy to know at least who the winning pitcher was.

This was also my first baseball game. I was 9, and went with my father, grandfather and uncle. We had mezzanine seats directly behind home plate. Vivid memories of the green grass and how well all who sat around us treated me upon learning it was my first game.

My second Mets game. A sunny Sunday afternoon at Shea. Art Mahaffey started for the Phils. Bobby Klaus hammered his first pitch into left for a single, and the rout was on. Phils botched a double play ball in the first. Mahaffey never survived the inning. It was 7-0 after two. Galen Cisco retired the first nine Phils. Richie Allen hit a 2-run homer in the 4th but the Mets hit the ball all over the lot. Klaus I think had 5 hits. George Altman had 3 or 4. Phils were never in it. John Herrnstein hit a 2 run pinch homer in the eighth but Cisco cruised to a complete game 12-4 win.

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.
