METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 14, 1989 GAME:

Sid Fernandez struck out 16 in this game, and maybe more amazingly, did not walk anyone. But his record fell to 7-3 when Lonnie Smith led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run.

Sid struck out everyone in the Atlanta lineup at least once. In fact, Smith had struck out in all three of his previous at bats in this game. Oddibe McDowell also was a K victim three times.

Miserable Crank

Mets fans (or Braves for that matter) may find this funny or bizarre. I needed to make a "party tape" of music for a Summer get together I was having.

Well, instead of recording tunes to a cassette tape, I decided to record a 3 hour continuous mix of music to a Betamax (remember those VCR days!) tape.

However, even though I was only going to play the audio, I needed a video control track to stabilize the recording.

Well, the Mets at the Braves on July 14th 1989 was a good video source as any. I recorded that game on SuperStation TBS as the video source.

It is funny to watch because it is essentially a 3 hour music video baseball game. The big, round eye glasses of the day are a real hoot to watch in 2007!

Lonnie Smith's top-of-the-ninth solo shot to win it for the Braves 3-2 was even set to music.

Looking back, it is a visual study in baseball anthropology.

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.
