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.

The best seats for the Syracuse Mets ever

What the heck, I figured at the Syracuse Mets box office 14 months ago. Let’s spring for the new feature. Table top seating. Behind home plate. Sure, they go for $25 a pop buying ahead of time (more if you happen to get them on the day of game), but this could be a one-time…

Cheers for Opening Day with the Syracuse Mets

After buying tickets for opening day way back in March 2020, my dear wife Karen, terrific daughter Elisabeth, George Three and I finally got to gather at NBT Bank Stadium to cheer for the Syracuse Mets on Tuesday, May 4. Yes, a whole season had been canceled by COVID-19. We had our names engraved on…

You can stock up anew with the Syracuse Mets

New season, new gear. You know the Syracuse Mets store was open and waiting for fans at Saturday’s open house at NBT Bank Stadium. There were plenty of shirts in styles I did not see in last year’s first connection between our hometown squad and my favorite major league team. Plenty. There was another side…
