SHEA STADIUM, NEW YORK
August 30, 2000
The #7 train stops right at Shea Stadium. The US Open at Forest Hills was underway right across the street.
August 30, 2000. Astros v. Mets. I was in NJ for a WMGQ visit. Drove through the Lincoln Tunnel and parked at the Port Authority garage. Took #7 train (the John Rocker train) to Shea. Had an excellent box seat looking down the first base line. I bought it on the internet. Astros and Mets. Mets won 1-0 on a Benny Agbayani passed-ball steal of home. At the 7th inning stretch they follow “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” with “Cella Luna.” Shea was a much nicer experience than I expected, given that it usually makes the list of the five worst ballparks.
