Let’s Go Syracuse Mets

I must admit this is the first time I’ve ever heard of a professional baseball team holding a garage sale.

So I agree to meet my terrific daughter Elisabeth and her sensational significant George Three at NBT Bank Stadium to see what the former Syracuse Chiefs had on the market as they make the change to the Syracuse Mets.

Early birds.

At 10 minutes prior to the opening bell of 9 a.m. Saturday, others were more curious than me.

Box office, check.

I noticed right away that GM Jason Smorol had his staff ready for the switch to the top team for the New York Mets. The announcement had been mid-week. Cosmetics were done over the ticket windows some six months before Opening Day 2019.

More than 100 people were present to march up the stairs and onto the concourse to look over the Chiefs merchandise.

Hover over a gallery photo for a description. Click on an image for an enlarged slide show.

I looked, but did not buy any of the old gear.

The most interesting point of interest came from the interest gleaned from Smorol by Elisabeth. He told her none of the Syracuse Salt Potatoes merchandise was marked down because that name was not retired. OK for a novelty game next year.

Buyers market.

There were many Chiefs fans who went for it.

Yet I was more attuned to the new stuff inside the Team Store.

Gray looks good on me.

My new Syracuse Mets shirt is the model on the right.

Hats off.

I like the new cap style, too, but will wait for another time. But my dear wife Karen now owns a women’s Syracuse Mets T-shirt in the style of the one on the far left. She likes it.

Happy new hoodie.

George has a new Chiefs hoodie to keep him warm, too. It will never go out of style.
