I was taught not to believe everything I read. But if I read something on a blog, it must be true.
Apparently, the Mets are using commemorative baseballs at Shea Stadium this year.I came across this nugget on a site called “Bloop Single.”:
I was at my first Mets game at Shea Stadium this year and my friend actually pounced on a foul ball. I didn't realize they had issued a special baseball for this season until I examined his. These are official Rawlings MLB baseballs issued with a special commemorative logo for Shea Stadium's final season. I'm still waiting to catch my first foul ball so now I have some added incentive to see some more Mets games this year.
Sadly, Loge13 is not and never has been foul ball territory so we may never get to verify this post.
