Here’s a dose of nostalgia for you: Random photos from the last game at Shea Stadium 9/28/2008.
I like to call this spot the Subway Section because it’s reminiscent of view from the subway platform outside of Shea Stadium where you could peek into the stadium. These photos are taken from just behind the right field scoreboard, next to the entrance to the Excelsior level inside corridor. You can watch replays on one of the televisions directly to your left.
It affords you a view right into the Pepsi Porch as well and if you look down, the World’s Fare Market concourse. In my eye this section includes the walkway to the Pepsi Porch, which doesn’t afford much in the way of real viewpoints of the game, but still offers a tease as you walk between sections.
Here’s a shot of the original “Subway Section” from Opening Day 2007.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America were at Citi Field yesterday to debut their new Mets collaboration.
The line, which features a variety of jerseys, Henley shirts, trail jackets, tanks and t-shirts by the likes of Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouël, Rogan Gregory for Loomstate, Scott Haan and Jeff Halmos for Shipley Halmos, will be sold exclusively at Citi Field from July 24, and is available now for special pre-order at online concept store Edition01.com.
If you’re looking for something different in the area of Mets apparel, this might be a way to go. I’m not really into fashion myself, and would probably stick with something from The 7 Line, but some of this was interesting looking.

I told you yesterday I’d make sure they won..
More photos after the break. The game started an hour late but looked to almost finish at a normal time before Frankie got a hold of it.
