The Mets open their final homestand tonight at Shea against the Cubs. However, instead of nostalgia, the Mets are in a fight to get into the playoffs. It would have been nice had they wrapped up a playoff spot by now, but the bullpen made that impossible.
Perhaps some of you might enjoy your greatest Shea memory this week should they clinch a playoff spot.
How about the rest of you? What is your favorite memory of Shea Stadium, where many of you grew up?
I confess I watched the Yankees last night in their last game at the Stadium. If you’re a baseball fan, you had to take a peek. However, I’m of the belief this wasn’t the House Ruth Built, but the one the taxpayers remodeled.
I know the remodeled place had some terrific moments, but if Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle and DiMaggio didn’t play there, it’s not the real Stadium.
