Mets announce a completely free digital archive of historical material

Thanks to @mediagoon for telling me to check my email.  The Mets, as always, used their spy cam to see when I am at my busiest and announce something.  I haven’t digested it, will comment later.  Seems way cool and the sort of thing we have been preaching here at MPHQ for over a decade.  Will comment tonight.

Fans can explore the Vault at
