METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 20, 1967 GAME:

Attended my first Mets game on July 20th 1967. I was 7 years old and my only memories are that it was "Helmet Night" and the Astros beat the Mets 7- 0. Can't believe its been 37 years and I haven't missed a Mets season since.

It was the first ever batting helmet night at Shea and the helmets were given out to all kids under 16. Well, I was a week shy of my 14th birthday, and the ushers thought I was much older and at first wouldn't give me the helmet, but my friend's dad intervened on my behalf. It was the reverse of being "proofed"! In the game, I remember Rusty Staub rounding third and instead of wearing spikes, he was running in cleats. I also recall his hesitance to bat while those jets from LaGuardia were soaring overhead. I had no way of knowing at the time that five years later, this finicky player would become my hero, "Le Grande Orange!"

This was my very first game. I was 7 years old. I remember the grand slam that was hit in the game although I didn't remember the player who hit it until I looked at the box score. My dad and I sat in the upper deck since that was all my dad could afford. I remember thinking this was so steep and that I would fall all the way down to the box seats.

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.
