Juan Lagares Steals Second Base

May 12, 2015

At Monday’s Mets/Cubs game, I just so happened to have my camera focused on Juan Lagares at first base. It paid off for me when he stole second: >

Harvey Day at Citi Field

April 24, 2015

I usually make at least one spring trip to NY and try to tie in a Mets game. When Nik and I planned this years spring trip a few months ago, we picked the April 19 game against the Marlins because it was the only day game they were playing during our trip. As the […]

The Mets/Cubs Debacle

June 10, 2014

I love the Mets. I look forward to schedule release day every year to see when they’ll come and play the Cubs. (Playing the White Sox in 2013 was just a bonus.) No matter how good or bad the team has been before coming to town, I always plan to go. In my seven years […]

My First Gary RailCats Game

September 4, 2013

For about six years now, Nik and I have driven past the U.S. Steel Yard baseball stadium in Gary, Indiana, home to the Independent League’s SouthShore RailCats. Each time we’d say to each other that we need to see a game. It finally happened this past weekend on Labor Day. I bought a $15 Groupon deal […]

Mets Split with Sox

July 2, 2013

I’m not a recap blog, so click here for a recap of the June 25 Zack Wheeler game against the White Sox and here for the June 26 Shaun Marcum game. That said, it was great to finally see the Mets play on the South Side. It’s the first time they’ve played in Chicago since […]

A Visiting Fan’s Guide to U.S. Cellular Field

June 24, 2013

U.S. Cellular Field aerial picture taken by me on June 26, 2011 from a helicopter ride. On the heels of my “Visiting Fan’s Guide to Wrigley Field” post, I wanted to create something similar for U.S. Cellular Field since the Mets will be making their first appearance there on June 25 and 26. The basics: Photo […]

Annual Game at Citi Field

June 17, 2013

I try to make one Mets game a season at Citi Field. I got there last fall to see R.A. Dickey get win No. 19 and was back this past Sunday, June 9, to catch a game against the Marlins. After exploring some coupon deals, I settled on a pair of tickets in section 312 […]

Mets Take Two from Cubs

May 21, 2013

Few things beat an easy walk to a baseball stadium. It’s even better when I can take a short stroll to see my team play. So this past weekend I took in three Mets–Cubs games at Wrigley Field. The team won on Friday, lost on Saturday and won again on Sunday. Friday May 17, a […]

Road Trip: Minneapolis

April 16, 2013

I’ve written before about how I love schedule-release day because it allows me to plan potential road trips. I said it this past September, when I saw the Mets would be visiting the Twins in 2013 over my birthday weekend in April, that I would want to go. So this is the first road trip […]

Bobblehead Cabinet

December 31, 2012

I’m not sure when I started collecting bobbleheads, but I imagine it was shortly after graduating college. I have so many of them that I had to pick and choose which ones would sit out on display at home. I have some shelves that they would sit on, but they’d get dusty. That’s when I […]
