Fan 5/31/64 - 8/11/94
March 28, 2005
Did you ever catch a ball in the stands? Years of going to games had the same result of one of my other lifelong Mets goals... seeing a no-hitter. Many close calls but no cigar. 9/18/92 was a nice night, the Mets out of it, me in my usual seat. Gooden pitching, Cordero at bat.

Those of you who sit in the same place all the time know that a ball that looks like its coming toward you will fall short and any ball that will came near you initially looks like it will go over your head. Cordero lifts a foul up towards the Mezz. I realized that it was going to come down right on top of us. Everyone stood. We were in a C box on line between the dugout and home. No one was in the B box that late season night. The ball went just behind us and hit the aisle between the boxes and reserves, then took a slow arch back towards us, just out of reach of what seemed like hundreds of hands. It came back over our heads and spent its energy as it settled like a feather as I closed my outstreached hands over it. The noisy excitement of the moment dropped to dead silence as everyone, reaching out towards my position froze as though time itself had stopped. A gift for a faithful and deserving fan.

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!
