This was the very first Major League game I attended. Toured the city earlier in the day with my Dad. Went to a Horn & Hardart to eat. Then, went to the ballpark. It was a day I'll NEVER forget. Ron Swoboda hit a home run on the roof in left and Richie "Call me Dick" Allen hit one over the left field roof and out of the ball park.

Note from a Phillies fan: I was also at this game at Connie Mack Stadium-- I was 10 years old. The think that made it stick in my memory was that right before Dick Allen hit that mammoth home run, a loud firecracker went off just as the pitch was released!

Andy ... you are absolutely right. After you mentioned it, I too recall the loud firecracker right before Dick Allen hit the home run on the roof in left field.

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!
