Went to this game with my brother and caught my first foul ball ever -- went to my first Mets game in 1972 and have usually made at least one game every year. The ball was hit by Dmitri Young. We were sitting behind the third base dugout and the ball hit off of an empty seat and bounced right into my hands! It was all the more memorable for me as I had just finished law school and my daughter had been born that January and I plan on giving that ball to her when she's old enough to understand the joy of baseball!

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!
