The Mets are announcing plans today for their new-and-improved Shea Stadium. What they eventually call the place could be determined by who writes the biggest check.
Anyway, I remember my first game at Shea … it was new then, so it looked pretty good. The Mets, believe it or not, lit up Sandy Koufax. It was the only time I saw him pitch in person.
My most other memorable Shea moments were seeing the Rolling Stones twice and the 2000 World Series.
What are yours? I need your help on this, so if you would be kind enough to send me your favorite Shea moments, I’ll run them.
They don’t have to be the Mets, either. It could be the Jets, or Stones, or the Beatles _ I can’t believe they played for 20 minutes _ or maybe it was seeing Seinfeld in the stands.
Let me know. Thanks. John
