— Days Without Shea —

Thumbnail image for Shea Stadium closeup on last day at Shea 092808
September 28, 2008 was the date of Shea Stadium's last game.

But October 14 is officially day one of the demolition process.

NY1 has a short segment on the new phase of the deconstruction of Shea.

As you probably know, Shea won't be imploded. Instead, it will come down section by section.

The Mets are really sticking to the timetable. It has been 14 full days since the last game.

Today was also the 39th anniversary of the first World Series game ever played at Shea Stadium. The Mets beat the Orioles 5-0 to take a 2-1 lead in the series. Gary Gentry was the starter and Nolan Ryan the closer. But it was Tommie Agee's game - he hit a leadoff homer and made two sensational catches. Perhaps the greatest single postseason performance by a Met in their history. And I was sitting in the upper deck, a very happy 14-year-old kid.

Great news. The Mets will offer partial plans at Citi Field. I received a letter in the mail today stating that the Mets will offer two (2) 40-game and five (5) 15-game plans.

Does no one in this country know what the term "implosion" actually means? Jeez!

The Cards took down Busch II the same way. It was strange to see pictures and video of the place coming down in chunks.
