Almost 50,000 at Shea. I sat way down the right field line. Jack Fisher started and looked like he had great stuff. Ron Herbel for the Giants. He survived a 2nd and 3rd one-out jam in the 1st by striking out Joe Christopher and Charlie Smith. Fisher got into trouble in 3rd. Bloop double just inside the right field line by somebody. Herbel hit a 23-hop single up the middle to drive him in. Another couple of bleeders, and up stepped Willie Mays. He hit one that is still going. Tremendous shot to left. Giants plated 5 in the 3rd. Mets rallied gamely but fell 8-3. Joe Christopher hit a solo shot in the 8th off Masanuri Murikami.

My aunt had passed away suddenly earlier in the week so we were somber despite the fact that our boys, the Jints and illustrious Willie were in town.

Willie sets a National League record for home runs in one month with his 17th of August, 41st overall.

Mays tops Ralph Kiner, who slugged 16 for Pittsburgh in September, 1949.

Wonder what Ralphie boy was thinking as Willie touched them all!

I sat in the upper deck behind home plate. I remember Mays hitting a homer that broke broadcaster Kiner's record for home runs in a month. Willie also made an excellent catch. The World's Fair was in progress adjacent to Shea, so the overall atmosphere seemed uniquely charged to this teen-aged boy from Jersey.

This was the first game I ever attended. I went with my dad and we sat in the mezzanine last section in left above the visitors bullpen. I remember watching Bob Shaw and Chuck Hiller warming up in the bullpen. I remember the tape measure shot Willie hit to left center. I can still remember the thrill of watching the ball in flight landing not far from my seat.

And I got to see Masanuri Murakami pitch. The first Japanese player in MLB.

To top it all off I found a Soupy Sales button on the ground on the way out. It said "Charter Member of the Soupy Sales Society" on it. I still have it. This brings back good memories of my now deceased dad and being a kid in love with baseball.

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.
