As always, beautiful words by Greg Prince.
There was no declaration that Banner Day would be discontinued, nor does it appear that the last of the marchers directed through Shea Stadium’s center-field gate wound up lost in the infamous auto yards across the street and never re-emerged, thus taking Banner Day with them. No, like the regular wearing of Mets pinstriped uniforms with blue Mets caps and the annual celebration of Old-Timers’ Day, Banner Day was simply allowed to flutter away.
