METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 11, 1980 GAME:

Richard Holmes
February 14, 2002
I was visiting my mother in Connecticut when I got a job teaching summer school back in my district in Northern Virginia. I was planning to see the Mets on my visit and my sudden wave of good fortune did not send me immediately back to Virgina. I had to see the Mets first. It was a great pitcher's duel and was deadlocked at 2 after 9. In the 10th Mike Jorgenson hit a grand slam homer to win the game 6 to 2. My adrenline was pumping so hard through me that it kept me awake for the next three hours on my way home to Virginia. I got home at 6:00 AM, took a shower and taught my first day of summer school. It was worth it.

I was 11 years old and my Grandfather got tickets first row behind the Mets dugout. When Jorgensen hit that Grand Slam in the 10th to win it, me and my brother were jumping up and down on top of the dugout like they just won the World Series. I went to a lot of games at Shea in the early 80's and I have forgotten most of them, but that moment I will never forget.

Jorgensen's homer was a great moment in my LIFE! Hey, I caught the ball!! I brought it to Shea the next night to get his autograph on it. Pete Falcone was signing autographs and took it into the clubhouse for me, and brought it back, signed by Jorgensen. By some chance, if someone out there just happens to have a video tape of this home run, (they used it later in the season in commercials for Fireworks Night) please email me!

I was home from college and there with friends sitting along first. When Jorgy jacked it we were jumping around, I was hugging strangers. My friends gave me grief, but I didn't because the Mets won and it was a happy recap.

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.
