METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 4, 1975 GAME:

I was 11 and on this day and my grandfather had taken me to Cooperstown to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. We stayed overnight and after dinner we were listening to this game in our hotel room. Now I have to tell you that for some reason my grandfather was a fan of young Met pitcher Randy Tate. He believed that he was going to develop into a fine pitcher.

On this night at least, my grandfather appeared to be right. As we listened to the signal as it faded in and out on a transistor radio, Randy Tate was pitching the game of his life. Over the first 7 innings Tate had struck out 11 Expos while walking 4 with his customary wildness. He had not only held the Expos scoreless, but hitless as well. The Mets led 3-0. The radio signal was getting weaker as Tate fanned pinch hitter Jose Morales to begin the 8th. After fading for a few moments, the signal returned and we heard that ex-Yank Jim Lyttle had broken up the no-hit bid. After that the signal was gone for good and we went to sleep, tired from the long day.

The next morning after breakfast, we walked past the Hall of Fame and saw the final on the museum's scoreboard. The Mets and Tate had lost the game 4-3. A walk, a Gary Carter single and Mike Jorgensen's 3 run HR, all off of Tate had ruined his fine outing.

Tate finished with 13 strikeouts. Ex-Met Chuck Taylor got the save for the Expos. Another nail in Yogi Berra's coffin as he would be fired as manager later that week.

I remember watching this game at my neighbor's house (he was a big Mets fan) and how pissed off he got when Randy Tate lost the no-hitter. He threw a beer bottle through the glass coffee table in his den.

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.

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.
