The first two trips my dear wife Karen and I took to CitiField, we sat on the right-field side of the Mets pretty ballpark.
So for the trip to meet the Long Island half of the family for a Mets-Nationals game on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, I picked a block of tickets in left field.
I’m always looking for different angles.
On the stairway toward the top, we stopped to look back out toward the parking lot. And we spotted Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the U.S. Open in tennis was being played even as we gazed. And we also spotted the famous globe, which I first put my eyes open when it was part of the 1964 World’s Fair right near Shea Stadium. Look hard in the photo above, past the CitiField facade, and you can see the tennis building to the right and the hemisphere to the left.
The trip to our 300-level seats – which the Mets call the Promenande and I’ll call one small concrete separation from the 400-level upper deck – took an escalator, ramps and a few flights of stairs.
Once we stepped out, the view was indeed breath-taking
We figured we were in for an interesting look at the Mets vs. the Nationals, to be sure.
Yesterday, I wrote about meeting the family at CitiField In the coming days, I’ll post about the game and the post-game fireworks.
Where do you prefer to sit to watch a baseball game, and why? Where don’t you like to sit for a baseball game, and why? Which is your favorite photo, and why?
