Shea Stadium, Queens, NY (September, 2006)

Often regarded as the bridesmaid (never the bride) of New York baseball is Shea Stadium and it's home team, the NY Mets.

However, after visiting both parks I find that a tragedy.  Every aspect of the game is better at Shea than at the famed Yankee Stadium.  Of course, I may be a bit jaded.  I can't stand the Yankee's style of baseball and I prefer the National League to the American League, but then again my vote for best player in history goes to Mickey Mantle (a Yankee) and I prefer old parks.  So, take the following pages for what they are--my opinion.
