METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 6, 1962 GAME:

Jim Eckert
January 21, 2011
This doubleheader was the first major league games I ever attended. I was 12 and had become a Met fan early this first season because of their name. It amused me because it seemed so silly. What on earth was a "Met"!? Little did I realize then I was attending history. The games were losses 16 and 17 in a row, still a club record 48 years later at this time. They sank this day to 12-36 for the season to attain the .250 WL percentage they were to fill out the season with at 40-120.

I do remember Richie Ashburn just standing at home plate, not arguing but just staring in disgust at an umpire for a long 10 seconds or so after he was called out on a pitch that seemed actually to bounce off the plate. He gave his bat a long low heave that made it skid nearly to the dugout.

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!
