One thought on “The Top 10 Secrets of Citi Field, Home of the New York Mets

  1. The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum gave this Yankee fan a good laugh…it was only added AFTER Met fans complained that CitiField was basically a tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers, and had nothing in that honored the home team. Thus, it gave the Dodgers TWO home stadiums.

    An embarrassed Met owner Jeff Wilpon dusted off the plaques of the long moribund Met Hall of Fame and added a few new victims — I mean honorees — and created the Mets Museum.

    First time I went to CitiField, I scrutinized the plaques and cracked up at the sight of Tug McGraw’s having a misspelled word. If I’d done that when I was associate editor their house magazine “Inside Pitch,” back in the 1980s (they fired me on when they sold the paper to “Baseball America” in 1985, another reason why I don’t root for the Mets any more), I would have been flogged as pre-game entertainment.
