How was the atmosphere?

Recently, Citi Field has been much louder and more upbeat, with the fans actually starting to get into it, and tonight was no different! While the place wasn’t completely packed, it was still filled semi-near capacity (or at least it seemed that way, due to the volume).

What did you eat?

I went to Pat LaFrieda’s Chop House in the Delta Club. Pat LaFrieda’s steak sandwich is out of this world! Whether it be at the chop house (a sit down restaurant), the stand in center field, or the stand in the upper deck, the sandwich is a MUST for any visitor of Citi Field!

Did you get any autographs?

I did! Before the game, Ron Darling Foundation had a little party in the bullpen, and I attended that with my family. At that party, I got the autographs of Dillon Gee, Josh Edgin, Anthony Recker, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. I also got a hat signed by Ron Darling and spoke to him for a while! Later, when I was walking around the Delta club, I saw Jesse Orosco, the Mets legend who made the final out in the 1986 World Series! I called his name, and he stopped to take a picture with me, sign a ball, and have a quick chat!

Any celebrities in attendance?

-Jesse Orosco- Played 24 seasons in MLB, pitched for the Mets in 1979 as well as 1981-1987, most career games pitches in MLB history, 2X All Star, 2X World Series winner
-Jon Matlack- Pitched for 13 seasons in MLB, pitched for Mets from 1971-1977, 1972 NL Rookie of the Year, 3X All Star, 1975 All Star Game MVP
-Gary Dell’Abate- AKA Baba Booey, Producer for the Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM Radio, pitched one of the worst first pitches of recent memory at Citi Field. 

Overall, it was a great game! A lot of fun, as usual, and very glad that the Mets won after that dreadful sweep at the hands of the Nationals. Mets are now 58-65, Zack Wheeler improves to 8-8 on the season.
