Our First Met game of the Season - Mets lose 4-3 to the Nationals

When noticed some changes as we approached Citifield this afternoon. The Home Run Apple from Shea Stadium was moved to the front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. There were also many banners saluting Mets stars of the past. The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum was opened for this second season of Citifield. It was crowded so it was hard to get close up to the many artificacts. We'll have to come back later in the season to spend more time there.

Our seats wer behind home plate in the upper deck. We met Alan Berman, the Dean of Oldies Listeners who is also a big fan of the Mets. The bad Oliver Perez was the starting pitcher as he allowed 4 runs, 4 hits, and 4 walks. Those bases on balls can really kill you. Willie Taveras drove in all 4 runs while Willie Harris made a diving catch to end the game as the Mets left the bases loaded and failed to score. You must hit in the clutch to win ball games.
