METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 8, 1967 GAME:

Alan Aron
February 28, 2011
My most vivid memory of that game some 43+ years later was how rookie Tom Seaver struck out Henry Aaron on three perfect pitches in the eight inning for out number 2.

Mets were leading by a score of 4-2 and every fan had one foot in the aisle, since the Great Hank was coming up to bat.

I remember after the strikeout the crowd went crazy, but Tom looked at his infielders as if to say, "We're not done yet. I still have got to get four more outs to close this game out." To have that poise under pressure was impressive. I thought he'd be a good one one day.

As Mets fans we didn't get our hopes up too high back then. He had a better career than I thought.

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!
