Give me the night (game)

Our behind-the-plate seats seemed even cooler once night fell over NBT Bank Stadium. Things looked crisp, did they not? By the way, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prevailed over Syracuse 9-8 in 10 innings. Whoa! We stayed for three hours worth of baseball. That means we left after seven, I admit, when the Mets were trailing by 8-2. I…

Great angles for baseball

KP and I had to stretch our legs for a bit during the Syracuse Mets-Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game Thursday night at NBT Bank Stadium. The sun setting over the left field wall sure was pretty as we wound our way toward right field. And the outfielders sure looked alert as we bellied up to the rail…

It’s Mets vs. Yankees for KP and I, kind of

When KP texted to see if I was interested in taking in the Syracuse Mets game against the Yankees’ Triple-A squad, I was all in. We’ve for four decades delighted in our devotion for the New York Mets and New York Yankees, respectively. We honor each other’s fandom. With a bit of trash talk every…

About that upper deck

My good friend Steven T read my posts about our first visit to NBT Bank Stadium this season and commented that he was less than thrilled about what the Syracuse Mets organization had done to the upper deck. My dear wife Karen and I went upstairs during our second game. The view wasn’t bad. But…

Now that’s a cool club

Over to the right field side of NBT Bank Stadium, the doors are open for the brand new Metropolitan Club. It’s a restaurant and bar with seats that look out over the field. Eye-catching are the names of greats who played for Syracuse baseball teams past over the many decades, when they were called the…

It’s an interesting sight, no bull

You can walk all the way around to left field in the Syracuse Mets’ NBT Bank Stadium to spy interesting views. Even more compelling to me than the bar that sits past the outfield fence was the bullpen, with pitchers waiting to warm up if needed. I found one player that couldn’t sit still with…

Another pitch for a good Syracuse Mets game

We’ve got tickets to see the Syracuse Mets at NBT Bank Stadium for an afternoon game today. The four of us are hoping it’s as cheerful as the 5-2 victory on opening day, that’s for sure. You’ll get photographs from our seats behind the Mets’ dugout on the third-base side in the coming week …

Another look at the Mets’ stadium comforts

On my earlier posts about our opening day fun at the Syracuse Mets’ season opening game at NBT Bank Stadium, I left some of my captures of NBT Bank Stadium improvements for … today. Down the left field line, looking out past the outfield fence, you’ll note a bar where fans can gather and watch…

And here’s the pitch

A full game of Syracuse Mets vs. Scranton/Wilkes Barre Rail Riders Triple A baseball from these seats on opening day May 4, 2021 was fairly fabulous. And my hometown Mets won, 5-2. May this season brings plenty of great games for us four.
