The new Citi Field had opened today, hosted St. Johns vs Georgetown. The season opening is slated on 4/13. The new stadium is classy, cozy, wide open, less seats (they couldn’t sell out anyway, might as well make them nicer and less ..) nicely done, with an old world charm, or old ball field feeling, like the Ebbets Field where Brooklyn Dodgers played. It’s a good place to go, to watch a game and have a drink or two. But today was too cold to have a beer 🙁 .. thank lord it didn’t rain out, the sun almost made it through. The Shea Stadium was like a no frill old Soviet thing, no kidding. The surrounding of the field is still lousy, not sure when it will be completely rehabilitated.
When we left, St. Johns was down 4:6. Every time when a Georgetown guy scored, but RBI or homer, the dugout would be emptied out, everyone rushed out to high five the player. So bush league .. This is the first time I saw a minor league or college, so I have no way of knowing it’s the tradition or just the Georgetownies.
Once we were vacationing at the Cap Cod, Golfer sneaked out for a minor league game at night .. couldn’t say I was disappointed .. but would it be nicer if he said he scored with a girl?
Golfer has a colleague who works in the tax department how’s evening gig isn’t parparing your tax returns but sell beers at the Shea now at the Citifield with the Mets. He does it for the love of it
I would take my kids there, the only problem is: would they want to go?
Now, will the Citigroup have the nine lives to renew the contract in 2029?
