METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 5, 1972 GAME:

My first Mets game. We originally were to go over the summer, but Hurricane Elizabeth rained it out. This was the night before the first day of school, so it was a big deal. It was pretty amazing to be 9 and see Tom Seaver pitching... I remember that Hank Webb made his big-league debut this night. Too bad they lost.

Webb's debut was not one to write home about...his first batter in the 9th was Ron Santo. He walked. His second batter was Jim Hickman. He homered. That turned a 1-0 game into a 3-0 game.

Another odd thing about this game...Seaver came out after five innings down 1-0. He wasn't pinch- hit for, but Ray Sadecki replaced him to start the 6th. Maybe Tom was not feeling well? Seaver gave up four hits, two walks, and struck out five through five innings so he certainly wasn't struggling.

NY Times Select has helped answer my question from September 2003: Seaver did pull a muscle in his hip while pitching to Don Kessinger in the top of the fifth. He finished the top of the fifth and was removed for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth.

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.
