We enjoyed the five hours we spent at Citi Field in Flushing, N.Y. this past Saturday, my dear wife Karen and I with our New York Mets-loving friend Steve Vicik Jr. and his lovely wife Kristen.
But it was wet.
How rainy was it as our Mets and the Cincinnati Reds played to that 1-1 tie through six innings, you ask?
Fans of all ages and sizes braved the weather in many places in oh-so-many ways until the umpires decided the water was too much for the players, the field, and oh, yes, perhaps themselves, too.
They waved the grounds crew to roll the tarp onto the infield about two hours after the game had started at 4:10 p.m., or just after the Mets had failed to push in what could have been the winning run despite loading the bases in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Let my iPhone 6 tell the story, won’t you?
