Loge13’s own Ron Hunt has been sharing with us artifacts from his extensive Shea archives. This may be the best item yet: Ron and his dad, Helmet Day 1967. Or did we figure out this was 1968? Either way, a great photo of a boy and his pop in the Mezzanine section:
I still have a small pile of those helmets floating around. This photo is 40 years old but you could have told me this was from last season and I’d believe it. Kids and parents bonding at games: that’s probably how most of us got hooked on baseball and why most of us endure the perceived slights against us as fans. Which reminds me, I still have to organize that last game at Shea Stadium with my kids.
