I'm pretty sure this was a Sunday night game broadcast nationwide on ESPN. It was "Turn Back the Clock Night" at Shea: the Mets unis weren't too different but the Reds were wearing the vests and black sleeves that they wore in the early 1960's and which are their regular uniforms today. Rob Dibble blew the save by giving up two runs in the ninth, the last on a hit by Bobby Bo. He stormed off the mound and tore off his uniform as he headed for the dugout. Priceless!

Bobby Bonilla hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to win this one for the Mets. After he hit the ball, Jon Miller (ESPN's play-by-play man) said the words "It's going to stay in the ballpark." One second later (no exaggeration) the ball landed on the Mets' bullpen. The next the the TV audience saw was Dibble tearing off his 1962 style uniform vest and leaving it on the field.

From time to time, ESPN has shown a replay of this home run, but only to show what Dibble did afterwards. The never show it with Miller's erroneous call. Tim McCarver once said in a commercial he made "Never say it's out of here before it's out of here." Miller made this mistake, only in reverse. He said it WASN'T out of here before it wasn't. But it was.

I recall this game as 'turn the clock back' night. After Bobby B hit a HR to win the game in the bottom of the 9th, I can still see Reds pitcher Dibble tearing his shirt off in disgust!

The National Anthem was sung by 1950's-60's singer, Julius LaRosa. I worked with his daughter at the time and gave her the tix for him to sign. He wrote: "We won!! Julius LaRosa". I still have the tix in my collection.

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.
