    That is your opinion.

    Many were happy to have a new ballpark in 1964 and grew up watching baseball at Shea. It was our home.

    Now I'm not one of those who is going to miss it too much as it has become a bit worn over the years.

    Looking forward to the Mets playing at a new park in a couple of years.
    The fact is the mets have not played in a real ballpark since 1963.you can like shea stadium all you want but there are many people out here that hates the ballpark or dislikes the stadium. its a dump in 2007 and was one in 1964. i cant wait to those demolition photos of shea stadium.

      You can keep cutting and pasting the same tired reply but it doesn't make it fact. Fact is many people have enjoyed Shea. Millions have attended games there, some have gone their to see their first major league game (Seaver vs. Marichal, 1968). People have memories of championships and favorite players. They're not going to take kindly to you calling the park of their youth a dump.

      Like it or not, it was is a REAL park. Been major league games there every year since 1964.

        • 1962 New York Titans

          The New York Mets were not the only sports team to call the Polo Grounds home in 1962. the AFL New York Titans played at the Polo Grounds from 1960 until 1963. in 1963 the teams nickname was changed from titans to Jets.the jets played the last event at the polo grounds in december of 1963 with a game against the Buffalo Bills.

            This is a Mets forum, so discussing the ballpark they play in isn't off topic. Tom Seaver played at Shea. Ron Swoboda made an amazing catch in the 69 Series at Shea. Agee made two. Seaver pitched his near perfect game at Shea. The Mets won two World Series IN that park. In 1973 coming down the stretch Cleon Jones played a ball that hit of the top corner of the fence, hit the cut-off man who threw it to Ron Hodges for the out. The Pete Rose, Bud Harrelson fight was at Shea. They clinched at Shea too. The Bill Buckner play was at Shea. Doc Gooden pitched there, Straw hit some blasts there. Mike Piazza slugged some big homers at Shea, especially that memorable one in the forst game after 9/11. The Mets have returned to the top of the standings this decade, still at Shea. Endy Chavez made one of the great catches in post season history, at Shea.

            Yes it's been a ball park, our ball park. Warts and all, call it what you like, Big Shea, home of the Mets for 44 seasons now.

                Ok whatever, you're the one who keeps bringing up Shea and calling it a dump. A little respect for the feelings of Mets fans on the Mets forum would be nice.

                              Thanks for bringing back a memory. My dad took me up to the Polo Grounds that day. I remember I got to skip school and it was a crumby, cloud and cold afternoon. The ballpark was a mess and stunk. I remember Bob Friend pitched for the Pirates and we lost. Naturally, I had a wonderful time.

                                Glad to hear this.you have to remmber that this game was the first baseball game at the polo grounds since 1957. i have seen photos and the mets did spend alot of money on renovations at the stadium even since at that time they only planned to stay at the Polo Grounds for only 1 season.Thank god that we got another year at the PG in 1963
