METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 17, 1967 GAME:

Jim in Texas
March 12, 2003
My first major league game and, as I recall, it was pretty much over after the second batter: the Cub who made it 2-0 with a first-inning home run. I recall getting the autograph of coach Salty Parker who became the manager at the end of the year. I also have a vague recollection of many Met infielders hurling themselves at grounders that went through for hits. Despite the humiliating defeat, I was hooked for life.

My first major league game attended also, not long before I turned 10 years old. I was with a large group of Little Leaguers from Pompton Lakes, NJ. I can't remember if we had one busload or several.

I was, and still am, a Yankees fan, and hated the Mets. So this game was very enjoyable watching the Mets get slaughtered.

I'm thankful that the score was 9-1, and that I always remembered that, because it made it very easy to find the date and box score of the game so many decades later. Not sure if I'd have remembered the score if it had been 3-2 or something, and there wouldn't be just one possible game with that score.

It's funny that I don't remember any specific plays from the game, or exactly where I sat (somewhere in the upper deck on the first base line, I'm pretty sure) yet from a Yankees game I went to later the same season, I remember section number, row, and many specific plays which are still in my head available for "instant replay". I guess I remember stuff I care about, more than stuff I like watching but don't care about.

I cared somewhat about seeing Ernie Banks in this game, but if not for the box score here, I wouldn't be able to tell you what he did. Quite unlike my memories of Mickey Mantle and Horace Clarke a short time later!

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.
