Happy Recap at Citifield last night
We usually don't go to ball games during the week, but last night's Met game was part of our 15 game package. I went from work directly to Citifield. Since I got there a little early I walked around the parking lot and found plagues marking the spots of the bases and the pitching rubber at Shea Stadium. As I entered Citifield, it started to rain in buckets. It stopped pretty quickly, but the game was delayed about 15 minutes. The Mets fell behind the Colorado Rockies, but the game was tied after 7 innings. In the bottom of the 8th Fernando Tatis hit a pinch hit grand slam home run to lead the Mets to a 7-3 victory. It is certainly nice to see the home run apple come up. in 1999 Tatis hit two grand slam home runs in an inning. His grand slam last night was the first pinch hit grand slam for the Mets since 2000.
