The New York Mets Retire Willie Mays' #24


I was watching the Mets Old Timers Game ceremony, but I had to go into the kitchen to start preparing dinner.  I was quite surprised to hear that the Mets are retiring Willie Mays' number 24.  Willie's best days were behind him when he was traded to the Mets in 1972, but his number is being retired to honor his days in New York National League baseball.  Mrs. Payson, the original owner of the Mets, promised to retire his number, but it didn't happen until just now. It was not announced in advance. I am sure that Gary Mintz and the New York Giants Preservation Society must be ecstatic.
