My fist major leauge game!! I'm looking for the box score. I know Hank Aaron played, but the only home run I remember hit was by Ed Charles!

It was my first MLB game, too. To honor that, I went to The New York Times and pulled up the story and the box score in order to write up a Web page about ... you guessed it ... my first MLB game. I hardly remember it, as I was a few days shy of my 6th birthday, but here's how it happened. The game was tied 3-3 going to the 8th when Hank Aaron hit his 22nd homer of the season. In the bottom of the 9th, with two out and the Mets needing a big hit, Wes Westrum pinch- hit Jerry Buchek for Bud Harrelson (who was 4-for- 4 at the time). Buchek delivered a homer to tie the game, and the Braves pitchers (Dick Kelley and Claude Raymond) fell apart. The game ended on a bases-loaded walk to Ron Swoboda, on a 3-1 count.

My first game too. Were we sitting together in the section for kids attending their first game? I remember the 9th inning being exciting.

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!
