The four runs the Mets scored in this game came on a grand slam by Jim Hickman. It was the first grand slam ever hit at Shea Stadium.

This was my first game ever at Shea. I was 8 years old at the time. If I remember correctly, my parents and I went to the World's Fair first (which was just across the street), and then we went to the game in the afternoon. I distinctly recall Hickman's grand slam, but I thought it occurred in the first inning, not the sixth as the boxscore indicates. I could be wrong, but I'm almost sure it happened in the first. I remember little else about the game except Hickman's slam, and that my parents bought me one of those stupid Mr. Met bobblehead dolls. Very exciting.

Jim, Sorry to report that Hickman's slam was indeed in the sixth inning. His homer came after a double and two walks.

Hickman was batting fifth in the Mets lineup that day, and the Mets went down 1-2-3 in the first inning as Bobby Klaus popped out, Ron Hunt flied out, and Joe Christopher was called out on strikes.

Is it possible that since you went to the Fair earlier in the day, you were late for the game and it just seemed to be the first inning?

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!
