METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 8, 1962 GAME:

Walter Pullis

This game broke a 17 game losing streak. I had a sprained ankle and listened to the game on the radio. The Met's announcers treated the ninth inning like the seventh game of the World Series.

This was the first game of a doubleheader at Wrigley and the Mets finally ended their infamous losing streak which had reached 17 games. I recall hearing the end of the game on radio after I got home from school - most weekday games on the road were not televised back then. Charlie Neal hit a SF in the top of the 9th to bring in an unearned run to put the Mets ahead, and Craig Anderson saved it for Jay Hook in the bottom of the 9th - although saves were not an official stat yet.

Of course, the Mets promptly went out and lost the nightcap!

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!
