Changes are coming to Citi Field this season, as the New York Mets are working with the New York City mayor’s office and the borough of Queens to change the stadium’s official address. 123-01 Roosevelt Ave., on the corner of Roosevelt and 126th St. in Flushing has been the home of the Mets for a decade. But today, it was announced that the club is working to change the address to 41 Seaver Way to honor Tom Seaver, according to sources.
It’s been 50 years since the Mets’ 1969 World Series Championship, and what better way to kick off the anniversary than a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves in the first spring training game — a sellout of 7,134 fans — at First Data Field.
Mike Piazza walked up to bat against Steve Karsay in the bottom of the eighth, the Mets trailing the Braves 2-1. Shea Stadium was electric; Mike Piazza was the guy fans wanted at-bat down a run late in a game.

The New York Mets split their doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, winning the first game in walk-off fashion 4-3, and losing the second game 3-1.
For those of you who know me, I am a diehard Mets fan. As tragic as it may seem, it’s how I was raised. I grew up watching “The Amazins” (if we can even still seriously call them that) with my dad. My dad is a Mets fan, so I am a Mets fan. Simple as that. Consequently, my sister Rebecca is, or maybe now I should say WAS, a Mets fan too.
