METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 4, 1966 GAME:

Jack Hamilton pitches a one-hit shutout in this game at St. Louis. The only hit was a two-strike bunt single by Cardinals pitcher (and future Met) Ray Sadecki in the third inning.

Sadecki was the losing pitcher and lone Cardinal to get a hit, if you call that bunt a hit!

Was traded for Orlando Cepeda a few days later. This was the last Met game at Sportsman Park and Sadecki's last game as a Cardinal.

I have great memories of this game. This was a very early season night game on a chilly evening in St. Louis. I remember Bob Murphy commenting that whereas most of the players had a sweatshirt under the uniform, Jack Hamilton wore just the uniform shirt. This was in the days before the obnoxious center field TV camera, and Hamilton's stuff looked fabulous from behind the plate. The fact that it was the Mets' last game in Sportsman Park added to the historic significance.

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!
