This was the second game of a twi-night doubleheader. I went with my Dad and two uncles...

See that run in the bottom of the 8th? That's Tommie Agee hitting one over the wall. We heard the roar of the crowd as we road down one of those giant escalators from the upper deck at Shea.

This was my first-ever lesson in the perils of leaving early. HRs by the Mets were so rare in those days, and it was a real disappointment to miss one b/c we were trying to beat traffic.

Anyway, the sweep of the doubleheader is a nicer memory than the missed HR!

LenDog, I don't know if you remember this about the twi-nighter this night, but the Phillies' Richie Allen failed to show up for the doubleheader. Gene Stone played first base in both games for the Phils.

Allen was fined $2,500 and suspended indefinitely (which turned out to be until July 20). He later explained that he had gone to New Jersey in the morning to see some horse racing and got caught in traffic on the way to Shea.

Jim McAndrew had a perfect game in the second game of the doubleheader until light-hitting shortstop Terry Harmon singled with one out in the sixth inning. The next batter was pinch- hitter Vic Roznovsky and he also singled. Then McAndrew retired the next eight batters before Ron Taylor came in to pitch the ninth. Jim had also driven in a run with a bases loaded walk in the four-run fourth inning.

Hey Bob P. - thanks for filliing in some blanks.

I barely remember this twi-nighter. I do remember McAndrew throwing a great game but details are fuzzy. I recall a beautiful night, lots of peanuts, and a Mets sweep - i.e., a dream night for a kid.

This was my 18th birthday. My father and a friend took me for my first trip to Shea and my first legal night out drinking. I remember the great time I had but few details. I still have my giant Mr Mets, and You have to believe buttons. And baseball was great then.

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.
