METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 23, 1995 GAME:

Chris Jones (the Mets pinch hitter du jour at the time -- the Matt Franco type) is batting with two outs in the 9th inning. He hits a long fly ball that lands over the fence right near the right field foul pole. The "homer" would've won the Mets the game; the Umpire ruled it foul.

I'm pretty sure Dallas Green got ejected arguing, and Jones struck out to end the game.

I seem to remember getting free tickets from a kind season-ticket holder for this game.

Glenn, here are more details from your posting in March 2002. Chris Jones actually started this game and batted fifth for the Mets.

From retrosheet.org:

The Giants led 3-2 with two out and Chris Jones at bat for the Mets. Jones hit a drive to right field which appeared to be a game tying homer off Terry Mulholland. However, first base umpire Gary Darling ruled the ball foul, even though replays of the hit showed it hitting the fair pole. Mulholland struck out Jones on the next pitch to end the game.

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!
