Earlier today. Media Goon volunteered to go take some pictures out at Citi Field – he’s one of the biggest “fans” of my photography what with my blurry lens and crooked angle techniques so he headed out to do better than I would.
While there he sent me an email.
Before we get to the email let me remind you that Mets Police is not news, it’s just a blog, hopefully entertaining, and use the information with a grain of salt.
That being said, I have two years invested in this thing, have decent street cred with you and I don’t throw stuff up here willy-nilly.
I trust Media Goon and here is what he says a guard told him today:
I went out to shoot pics of the new additions out atÂ Citi FieldÂ today. I am working on re-sizing them now. While I was there I talked to one of the security guards(who by the way was wearing a blue with black Citi Field jacket. I was expecting it to be red like their shirts they wear). Â He told me the hall of fame might not be ready by opening day. Â He also said the bullpen looks really cool inside now too. Â Also, he pointed out all the new banners, fan walk bricks, and the renamed entrances. Â I also walked by McFadden’s and I couldn’t get any pics of the work going on inside of it. Â I peeked though and saw there was a ton of drywall work done. Â It is not that big open space that you took pics of when you were there. Â I have a feeling it will be ready byÂ April 5th.
Pics to come later.
I sure hope the Hall is ready by Opening Day.
As for McFadden’s – the manager Shawn had told me that the space would be split into different areas/rooms. Â Since I’m not sure what Goon saw I am just speculating.
Perhaps, and hopefully, the guard is misguided. Â I’m confident the conversation took place.
Hall of Fame. Â Discuss.
