METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 9, 2009 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
August 11, 2009
After 30 plus years of going to Shea (RIP), it was time for yours truly to make my initial trip to Citi Field. After being awestruck seeing the spacious and beautiful Jackie Robinson rotunda; I got to my seat at the Excelsior level 332, row 12, seat 13. Me and my long time friend Kathy saw everything except most of the scoreboard, HD Diamond Vision and parts of left field but that's okay. It was Autism Awareness Day and we were treated to a pre-game acoustic concert by 80's rocker Sebastan Bach (Skid Row) and then Garry "Bababooey" from the Howard Stern Show threw out the 1st pitch and it was straight out of "Bull Durham". The weather even worked out as the threat of rain storms never happened as the Mets romped over the Pittsburgh Pirates!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
