Only 8 at the time. My third trip to Shea. The first trip with a happy recap as the Mets came back against Mike Marshall. Watching Marshall in the World Series that year, I thought if Mets can beat him, they can't be that bad. Experience has tempered that early optimism.

I remember that my Grandfather was on vacation and took me to this weekday afternoon game. Sat in the mezzanine, third base side.

I have always remembered the Mets coming back against Marshall in this one. But not until looking at the box score here was I reminded that Marshall was being asked to complete his 4th inning of relief. This from a man who would appear in 106 regular season games as well as the post season.

As I recall Rusty Staub lined the game winning hit over the drawn in outfield. I also had a memory of Davey Lopes stealing 2nd and coming up from his head first slide choking from the dirt, but looks like he was thrown out on the play.

And how about that noted speedster Bill Buckner with 2 stolen bases giving him 26 on the way to a career high 31. Who could have predicted what fate had in store for him on this very field?

This was my first game at Shea Stadium, in fact the first time I had seen a game in person, at the age of thirteen. I went with my aunt, uncle and cousins, who were also all Mets fans. The trip seemed too long at the time (4 hours). Today, the trip seems so much shorter. No one ever forgets the feeling of walking up tunnel from under the stands and seeing the green playing field for the first time. I've been to many games since then, and the feeling is still the same. My most vivid memory of this game is of Rusty Staub getting the game winning hit in the bottom of the 9th. He was my first favorite Met and will always be a favorite.

The first game I ever went to with my Dad! I remember taking the bus from the S.I. Ferry terminal and the bus driver did not know the way to Shea! What stands out for me the most though was that Tug pitched two scoreless innings and got the win in this game! It was a shame that he was gone at the end of the season! It was the first and only time I got to see Tug pitch! I had forgotten that Tom Seaver had started this game. Still, it was a great day at Shea all the same!

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.
