"ROOSEVELT AVENUE BASEBALL NOTES"A Mets News & Commentary Column By Ron Dresner email: email@example.com
July 13, 2013 -- We'll see everybody this Saturday at the All-Star FanFest at the Javits Center in NYC. I'm looking forward to the "heavy" Mets atmosphere including some of the players from the old days and hopefully the "light" Yankees presence. While everyone is interested in getting autographs (including Rob, the dedicated Red Sox fan I am going with to the FanFest), I'm more interested in capturing unique photos and memorabilia at the event. Of course, I'm also interested in getting a picture of myself with Mr. Met and many of the other past Mets players attending the event.
Quickly switching subjects to the present Mets team -- did anybody listen to WFAN the other day and the discussion about how the Mets just can't play to win at CitiField? I'm one of the last fans that probably refuses to sound the name, "CitiField", and instead still calls the Mets home, "Shea". I can't help feeling the Mets players also do not feel comfortable playing at their home field. (In addition to calling CitiField "Shea", I refer and describe the stadium as a colorless, billboard ball field).
Knowing that the Wilpons from the start never accepted the tradition of the Mets and Shea Stadium, I think some further "reworking" of the Mets home ball field needs to happen. (Yes, as of a couple of years ago, we have the "Shea Bridge"). The first thing I thought about after listening to that WFAN discussion the other day was to somehow recognize the role and achievements Gil Hodges symbolized for all Mets fans. I know we can't rename the rotunda, but Gil needs to be heavily remembered at the stadium. Any ideas?
Lastly, does anybody have any other further beefs with WFAN? The Mets anchor radio station needs to remember that it is the METS ANCHOR RADIO STATION -- AND NOT THE YANKEES HOME STATION. Yes, WFAN is a sports talk radio station for the New York area, but aside from carrying the games and broadcasting a pre-game show, how often the radio station dedicate further programming and discussion about the Mets? There is definitely too, too much Yankees discussion on the radio station.
Closing note -- While I seeing a Mets team that is a reflection of Terry Collins efforts, I still miss R.A. Dickey. I believe his role on and off the field is missed by his team mates AND the front office.
