Ahh, the summer of '99. A very special summer for me. A good part of that was because of the Mets. I was going into junior year of high school. I attended this game with my then good friend Tim, and my parents. We were treated to a pitcher's duel. Masato Yoshii threw what was one of many good games during that stretch run. Mike Hampton, who was a real Met-killer then, pitched just as well. Mike Piazza tied it at 1-1 off Hampton late in the game. It went into extra innings. We could not stay that long. As we were in the car, Dennis Cook came in and got bombed. I believe it was Jeff Bagwell who hit a bomb. Mets lose, 5-1. Otherwise, a very awesome night for all of us.

As a life long Mets fan from Connecticut, this was my first Met game, at the age of 19. Took a bus trip with my then girlfriend's mother's work. I remember Piazza tying the game with the home run and then almost hitting a game winner in the 9th inning that made it to the warning track in center. Then in the 10th (I think) Bagwell hit a home run just inside the right field foul pole.

I was at this game with some family members and we sat in the Pepsi Picnic Area in left field at the old Shea. Everyone joked that night we would be getting a lot of baseballs headed our way with Yoshii pitching but he was very effective that night. The game was 1-1 going to extra innings when, if memory serves me right, Tony Eusabio of all people hit a double and knocked in the go-ahead run then Bagwell hit a 3-run shot right after.

The thing that I remember most about this game though was there was a little kid sitting next to me who would scream at the top of his lungs between innings "Hi Rickey Henderson" loud enough for the whole stadium to hear. Rickey was playing left field that night by the way. And Rickey being the warm guy he was didn't even acknowledge or look at the youngster once the whole time!

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.
