This game was the first of four career no-hitters by Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax.

This game was televised from the coast - an 11 PM start. I fell asleep during the second inning. I vowed never again to leave a game until I saw a team get their first hit. Finally paid off a couple years later when I saw Jim Bunnings perfect game - ignoring all my friends screaming at me from outside to come out and play stickball!

If my memory serves me correctly this was a Friday night game (Koufax no-hitter). I don't even think the results were in Saturday's Newsday. I don't remember WOR televising the late West Coast games until around 1969. Anybody?

This game was on Saturday night, televised on WOR-9 and it was not the first time they faced Koufax. In the first inning Sandy threw 9 pitches striking out the side.

It has gone unnoticed but it was Ray Daviault's best major league performance.

Example One
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.
