  • Shannon Forde and Kevin Collins, former Mets figures, pass away

    Longtime Mets publicist Shannon Forde has died at 44.

    Shannon Forde, the beloved media relations staffer for the Mets, died Friday after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 44.

    "Shannon was a very unique person," Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said in a statement. "I was fortunate to see her a few weeks ago at the rehab facility and had a great time laughing and visiting with her for over an hour. My condolences to her husband, John, two children, Nicholas and Kendall and the Dalton and Forde families. Citi Field won't be the same without her contagious smile and genuine personality."

    From all accounts Shannon was terrific. I still remember the ASG at Citi in 2013 during Stand Up 2 Cancer and Tim McCarver holding up his card saying "Shannon Forde".
