I attended this game as an 11-year-old with my best friend and his family. Sat press level behind the plate. I vividly remember the following details: Rose, with the rampant Shea booing since the Harrelson fight, led off game with a homer off Seaver that bounced off the rim of the CF fence. He hustled around the bases to continued booing. Griffey then doubled and scored. And that was it for the Big Red Machine's scoring as Seaver cruised the distance. John Milner hit a monster homer over the RF fence. Then in bottom of 8th, the Mets squeaked out the win as I especially remember a slow ground single to right by light-hitting Mike Phillips, and later driven in on a single by Staub, and the place went nuts. Seaver then finished the Reds off. For a low-scoring game, I remember that this was actually an exciting game with a great finish and a happy ending against a powerful team.

This was the first baseball game I ever attended. I was 9 years old and it was Mother's Day and I went to the game with my father, mother, brother and grandmother (who was a huge Mets fan). I remember they gave out Mets hats (like fishing hats you'd wear on a beach) to everyone.

It was a beautiful day and we were sitting about mid-level between third base and the left field foul pole. Pete Rose did lead off the game with a home run and it did hit the top of the wall and bounce over (the only time I've ever seen that) but I remember that Rose pulled it and the ball hit the top of the fence in right (not center) and it landed in the bullpen.

The Reds scored 2 in the first and that was it and Seaver pitched a gem (how many times did Seaver give up 2 runs in the first then shut out the opponent for the next eight innings--lots & lots) and the Mets wound up winning 3 - 2.

I remember telling my father that even though the Mets won we had seen a "bad game" because not many runs were scored and in his infinite wisdom he told me "no son, we saw a great game because even though the game was low scoring it was close which makes the game exciting." So I left the game very happy not only because the Mets won but also because I saw a "great game." And it was also one of my first lessons in baseball lore.

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.
