METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 15, 1971 GAME:

Second game of a doubleheader at Shea, and Burt Hooton gets his first major league win. Hooton, who had been pitching for the University of Texas four months earlier, had a no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning when Mike Jorgensen singled, and then Ken Singleton hit a two-run homer to tie the game, 2-2.

But Billy Williams hit a pinch-homer off Danny Frisella in the top of the ninth to give Hooton his first of 151 victories. Burt struck out 15 Mets in the game.

This night sucked. Swept in a doubleheader and toyed with by a rookie in game 2.

I had seen the Mets sweep two or three doubleheaders before this night and two losses followed by that excrutiating Shea to New Jersey drive was a bummer.

The only vivid memory I have is of Singleton's HR clearing the wall.

Now that I'm older, I guess I appreciate the trivia of being at Burt Hooton's first win, but it was not fun at the time.

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!
