Tag Archives: Citi Field

a whole ‘nother ballgame for me…

I won’t pretend that I’m a huge baseball fan….however-Baseball is ‘yuge’ here in New York. On game days the subways are filled with Yankees and Mets shirts and I am now very familiar that Jeter, Wright, Santana, and Rodriguez are BASEBALL players and not football, soccer or the dozen other sports players that I don’t follow. (However I will admit to knowing that Derek Jeter has a shoe addiction.)
My cousin Tim is a huge baseball nut and offered to take us to a Mets game….and I’m always up for checkin’ out new stuff. So off we went to Citi Field-The Mets brand spankin’ new stadium in Queens.

The front entrance of Citi Field features a rotunda named after Jackie Robinson and honors his life and accomplishments. Engraved into the rotunda’s 160-foot diameter floor and etched into the archways are words and larger-than-life images that defined Robinson’s nine values: Courage, Excellence, Persistence, Justice, Teamwork, Commitment, Citizenship, Determination and Integrity. Robinson’s famous quote: “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives,” is engraved into the upper ring of the rotunda.

Just love the colors of the grass and the dirt.

I love anyplace where I can go home with cotton candy!
