METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 11, 1965 GAME:

This looks like the game that Phil Gagliano collided with Ron Hunt and Hunt separated his shoulder. Hunt was to miss most of the season but bounced back in 1966 before being traded. My rememberance of the play is that with Gagliano on first, Hunt fielded the ball closer to first than second, seeing that he could not get a double play may have been trying to get an obstruction call by aligning himself in Gagliano's path. My friend, who attended the game, remembers that fans of all ages and types were looking for Gagliano after the game. I am not in a position to vouch for that but I can vouch for the fact that Phil Gagliano was booed at Shea for as long as he remained in the league.

This injury was akin to Piazza's groin difficulty because it deflated the entire season for the Mets and their fans. Perhaps more so in that Hunt was even more important to the team than Mike was.

We saw this game on our honeymoon. We had gone to the World's Fair in Flushing NY at same time and I dragged my new bride to a baseball game. I continue to remind her she saw a classic of Spahn vs Gibson. Our marriage continues 41 years later. Seen many Red Sox games since then.

1965 was a time when Mets had many over the hill guys who like Spahn once were the best. Cardinals were a power and Gibson was on the way to being one of the best ever leading to his brilliant 1967 World Series vs my Sox.

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.
