METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 7, 1962 GAME:

The first time my father took me to the Polo Grounds, the Mets split a pair of one-run games with a pretty good Cardinals team. Little did I know that the second-game loss would begin a string of 16 losses in the next 17 games. Ray Daviault earned his only big league victory in the opener, thanks to a pinch-hit HR by “Marvelous Marv” Throneberry. Sammy Taylor caught both games(!) of the doubleheader and homered in each game. He hit only three all year and 33 in his career.

This was the first of two pinch-hit walk-off homers Marv hit in 1962. This one is credited with helping establish him as a fan favorite. The other one (on 8/21) is legendary as he was called on to pinch-hit after coaching at 1B for much of the game!

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.

Thank you!
