Talkin’ Baseball

Entertaining? Definitely.

Sobering? Yes, that too.

Old Timer’s Day at Citi Field caught me a little off guard. How so? It was a reminder that time is whizzing by like a Jacob DeGrom fastball.

The Mets trotted out 60 to 65 former players, some that christened Shea Stadium in 1964. They had a little festive game of their own at Citi Field. Among them was Ed Kranepool, whose autograph I collected as a giddy eleven year old at the’64 World’s Fair.

Here it is all these years later. Who says baseball is waning? Just between the two New York teams, a monumental tradition of sport reigns prouder than ever.
