METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 5, 1975 GAME:

Jim from Connecticut
November 10, 2006
My first major league game! My dad brought me, a new 8 year old Mets fan, down the Connecticut Turnpike on this beautiful late summer day to the big Shea. We sat in the Mezzanine down the left field line, right in the middle of left field and 3rd base. Dave Kingman was my hero and I was thrilled to see him launch a high fly into the Mets' bullpen. This was during Mike Vail's hitting streak and he also hit a line shot HR into the Mets bullpen.

Some more memories of the game: Tom Seaver pitched great, Lou Brock's stolen base, Ted Simmons thrown out at the plate, Felix Millan choking up. I also remember two kids that ran into the outfield to shake Mike Vail's hand during the game and seeing the cops chase them. One kid jumped over the left field wall and ran away into the parking lot as the cops chased him. I wonder where they are today.

Sadly my Dad passed away last year. We saw many games at Shea together after this, but this was a magical moment in my life and such a treasured memory for me and my Dad.

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.
