Before a game in 1997, a giant flower ring was presented at Shea. Bobby Valentine was either given it or presented it.
I would make fun of it, but I do not know what the ceremony was for and I do not want to look disrespectful.
Oh and by the way, those Mets uniform without pinstripes were the best home unis they ever had.
I went to a game at Fenway with my best pal Ritch Duncan in 2002. A stranger took this picture. It was the last year before the monster seats, as you can see in the background.
I didn’t return until 2016. They won 3 World Series titles in between my visits. Maybe I should stay away again.
The great knuckleball artist Phil Niekro was at the Hall of Fame event I attended in 2002. I swear to God he could make at least three different major league staffs today.
