You know the Yankees will take some momentos for the Stadium into their new place. I wonder what the Mets will take from Shea.
There’s a small wood sign in the back of the press box here in Philly with this stenciled message: “No bottles or cans in the press box.”
It’s from old Shibe Park. And, off to the press dining room is a small Philadelphia Baseball Hall of Fame. How great is that?
The new places are great, but some of the old places have real character and it’s great when they bring a taste of it over.
A couple of Phillies are playing catch. … there are six members of the grounds crew watering the infield (five holding the hose and one the nozzle) … and a singer is practicing “Take me out to the ballgame.”
I’ll touch base with you later with the line-ups. Tom Glavine going for 10 tonight.
