METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 29, 1993 GAME:

Ed K
May 22, 2004
Kenny Greer's only Met appearance and he was the winning pitcher!

Bob P

Ed, not only was it Greer's only Met appearance, but it was his major league debut. He pitched the top of the seventeenth and got the win as the Mets scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the inning on an RBI double by Jeff Kent.

Greer had been acquired by the Mets from the Yankees a year earlier in exchange for Frank Tanana.

This 17-inning game--in the last week of the season between two teams going nowhere--was finished in four hours and 21 minutes. The two teams combined for twelve hits.

This stood as the most innings in a Met game from the period 9-29-93 until 7-7-07 when they beat the Astros in 17 innings as well.

Greer won the only game he ever pitched in for the Mets in this looooong game.

I'd LOVE to see this game on tape if anyone has it...maybe SNY has a copy in their vault, but sadly I sincerely doubt it.

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.

Thank you!
