METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1969 GAME:

My dad took packed me and about 7 friends into the family station wagon to see this classic game. McCovey homered early off Seaver and Mets trailed 3-1 heading to bottom/7th inning. Swoboda knocked in one run, Rod Gaspar hit his only major league homer and Duffy Dyer delivered a pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom/8th to decide it. It was victory #3 in important 11-game winning streak.

This was a memorial day ballgame. McCovey drills a Seaver fastball almost over the scoreboard. The ball hit somewhere near the Mets posted lineup. Agee looked up and waved at it, never moved a muscle. Why bother? Willie Mac received 45 free passes that year, at the time a major league record. Barry gets that much in a 4 game series!

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
