I grew up in an era when interleague play was a pipe dream, or a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye. But I always loved watching the World Series when a National League team would face off against an American League squad, and I also remember going to the Mayor’s Trophy Game, an exhibition between the Mets and Yankees each year that didn’t amount to much because both teams let their scrubs play. So I was [...]
Tonight’s game at Citi Field is an historic one. The first Subway Series game at the Mets new ballpark. And yes, I am privileged enough to be going. I finally get to see for myself, live and in person, what all the hype is about. (Ok, I can imagine. But it’s not the same until you’ve actually been there.) As a segueway into this weekend’s series, I’d like to take a look at the history of [...]

When I was younger, I had a t-shirt that read “I root for 2 teams – the Mets and whoever is playing the Yankees.” That was a long time ago, before Inter-League play. Now, for the next three days, Mets fans will become Yankee fans; and vice-versa. What is this world coming to ??? I wonder if the powers-that-be at Major League Basball intentionally matched up the two New York teams with each other’s number one rival, [...]
