In recent years food offerings at baseball stadiums have vastly improved.

Check out a post where MLB baseball stadiums are ranked by food. If you love baseball and food, then you’ll definitely want to read this book!

When I think of baseball, I think of grabbing a good burger at a stadium. My favorite team, the New York Mets has one of the top fast- casual burgers available behind the centerfield scoreboard- Shake Shack! Continue reading New York Mets Getting New Pizza Option from Danny Meyer

Delta Carrying Mets to World Series? I thought Daniel Murphy Did!

It’s been tough being a New York Mets fan over the years but 2015 has been a really great season. With the World Series starting on Tuesday night, it will be the Mets first time back in 15 years.

I’ve been watching more baseball than usual due to the playoffs. Since the WS doesn’t start until next week, Lucas can have the TV back until the series begins!

Jumping By the Home Run Apple, Queens, NY

A couple of weeks back I got to take Lucas to his first Mets game. I wrote a post about it here. With baseball being my favorite sport, I had to get him started early.

Right outside the main entrance to Citi Field is the Home Run Apple. It used to be inside of Shea Stadium (the Met’s former home), behind the centerfield wall. At Shea, each time a Mets player hit a home run, the apple would pop up from the hat it rests inside of.

While the Mets were building Citi Field there was a lot of worry as to what would happen to the apple. The Mets decided to replace the original apple with a brand new one. This upset many fans but at least the original would be displayed at the new stadium!

My favorite sport has always been baseball. Through the good and mostly bad, I’ve always stayed loyal to my favorite team, the New York Mets. Over the last few years (20+?), there hasn’t been much to cheer about but at least when I was a little kid the Mets were the talk of the town. Damn ,1986 was such a long time ago!
