This was my first major league game. My Dad took me on a muggy spring afternoon. I couldn't believe how green the diamond grass was. The Polo Grounds was a very intimate stadium. I remember sitting near stanchions supporting the upper deck.

Norm Sherry's home run in the top of the second was off Warren Spahn's first pitch. It was a line shot straight into the left field upper deck. All of this was unforgettable for a seven-year-old boy. Amazingly enough, the Mets won, which was all to rare in those early years.

I am so happy to find this box score online.

This was my second major league game. Since all you had in those days was black and white tv, the field looked magnificent! The greenest grass and the brownest dirt you ever saw. I remember Sherry's homer very well. A line shot right down the left field line into the upper deck. I remember Warren Spahn's ridiculously high leg kick and I could not believe that the Mets beat him.

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.
