    I agree Alpine. Who needs another Astrodome. Nothing beats the sky and that's what made Shea better than the other enclosed circles like Riverfront - the open outfield.

    I remember there was a small brass band that used to play in the stands at Shea on mnay occasions in the 70's and they would complete with JJ's organ music. Annoyed me to no end to have to hear her melodies drowned out by their music. Anyone else remember who these folks were? Trombone, trumpet, maybe a snare, plus at least one other.

    Yes I remember. They would go to every level except upper deck.

    JJ was doing her jazzy ditties on the Thomas and they were pounding away out of rhythm and key from her music. Even on WOR 9 TV you heard it.

    My recollection is that they were sponsored by Manufacturers Hanover Bank.

    Not Shea, but almost as good, complete Game 1 of the 1973 NLCS, Seaver vs Billingham, posted in the Riverfront thread. Mets TV feed almost through the 8th, with Mets radio feed the rest of the way. Reds won, 2-1, but Mets would rebound to take the pennant.
