Citi Field Home Opener

I’ve been seriously slacking on the posting here. No excuses.

Baseball season has started! The Mets are off to a mediocre 4-4 start, including a loss in their home opener in their new park, Citi Field. The offense has been pretty good. They struggle with runners in scoring position, but have still been scoring a lot of runs. Pitching and defense, on the other hand, have not been good.

I went to the home opener with my mom, brother, and nephew. It was a lot of fun, even with the loss. David Wright’s game tying two out 3 run homer was incredible. Ryan Church’s dropped flyball the next inning, not so much. A lot of planning went into getting specific tickets for this game. I’ve posted my pics of Dodger Stadium and PETCO here before, and I wanted to get a similar shot at the first game at the Mets new stadium. Getting tickets in the front row of the upper deck was a must, and it worked out beautifully. I’m not sure how I managed to do it, but this is an even better picture than the one of Dodger Stadium.

Citi Field, Opening Day

I have more pictures from the game, and they’ll all eventually be in the Citi Field Opening Day flickr set, but I’m not sure when I’ll get to those.
