Citifield Tour Today

Bruce at the Citifeld Press Room

Early in the season the Mets advertised tours at Citifield. When I checked the web site, all the tours were sold out until September.  Since we got there a little early we took some photos by the Shea Stadium Apple located just outside the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.  We also went to the parking lot where there are plaques marking the location of the bases at Shea.

The tour guides took us through several areas of the park which are not open to the public such as the luxury suites, press box, club house, dugouts, bull pens, and press room (see above).  We were not allowed  to take photos in the clubhouse area to protect the players' privacy.  I was impressed by large displays of the covers of the Met yearbooks from 1962 to the present.  That should really be in a public area.  The tour concluded at the Mets Hall of Fame which is usually very crowded on game days.

My photos are on my Facebook profile or can be seen at
