This was the major league debut of John LeRoy, whom I played with as a teammate, growing up in Bellevue, WA. He got the win in relief for the Braves, never again pitched in the majors, and died of an aneurysm in 2001 at the age of 26.

Nobody has noted that in this game, Rafael Belliard hit a 2-run HR in the 7th inning off of Brian Bohanon. This is quite a notable feat. The last time Rafael Belliard had hit a Home Run previous to this was on May 5, 1987. That is 1987. 10 years and 1,869 at-bats in between HRs. And, of course, it beat the Mets. Simply remarkable.

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!
