METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 6, 1974 GAME:

Tony McClean
August 11, 2015
This was the very first Mets game at Shea Stadium that I attended. My uncle and me took the subway to the game. I bought a batting helmet, yearbook, and I was in seventh heaven. Even though it was a very hot day (about 85 degrees), I proudly wore my batting helmet during the whole game. It's still one of my most favorite memories as a baseball fan even though the Mets lost the game. My uncle passed away a few years later and remembering this day makes me remember him as well. He was a longtime Brooklyn Dodger fan who followed the Mets when they came to town. Whenever I get off the No. 7 train and see the ballpark in the distance, I always remember this day and my uncle. Thanks for helping me share this great memory.

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!
