METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 30, 1995 GAME:

February 27, 2002
I kept the ticket stub to this game because it will be THE only time I ever pay $1 to attend a sporting event. The strike had ended, the seasson got off to a late start, and the Mets were so desperate for fans that they charged $1 for field level box seats to this game. I was treated to a miserable display of baseball (Kevin Lomon pitched for the Mets -- 'nuff said) and to top it off it rained for most of the game. The highlight was Joe Torre getting ejected from the game for arguing a running inside the baseline call on Jose Oquendo. It was just a year before the Yankees began their nauseating World Series run so it's easy to forget that Torre was in St. Louis and that Buck Showalter was managing in the Bronx.

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.

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!
