Just came back from our first Spring Training game and although our team lost :( it was a thrill to be back in the stands, watching our great team. Today we saw new young prospects replacing the first string. We saw some great plays and for this we are always thankful for the boys of summer.

James,
That is just heartbreaking to see but I do appreciate you sharing. I'm sure it will all be gone by opening day one for the memory and 2 for the safety. I'll add some more photos of citifield on my webpage for ya.

My husband thinks that it will be very hard for Citibank to get out of the naming contract.

We plan on making it to 5 Spring training games. We are just itching for some BBall.

I was VERY lucky. Made some business connections and I was told that we were actually the first fans (non-vendors) to tour. The front office just moved in two days earlier! The gents in the photo are both Front Officers with the Mets. My grandmother opened Shea and my hubby and I travelled up to close out Shea. It was bittersweet. Now I have memorabilia from opening day 1964 and closing day 2008!

Just go to nymets.com to see the dismantling of Shea.

Hey, how did you get to tour Citi Field? I was in NYC with my kids last weekend and thought about riding the subway out to see what Shea Stadium looks like now as they disassemble it. If I had been traveling without the kids, I'd have done it, too.

Citi Field will have big shoes to fill.

The Mets used to play a spring training game against the Orioles, and I saw a couple of those, including the first game ever at Camden Yards,

Since some of you have been blanketed in cold snow - thought we'd talk about Spring! Spring Training that is in sunny Fla. Laura
