— Days Without Shea —


More from Ron Hunt in Dodgertown:
There were almost twice as many fans at the sunday game, a holman stadium record, red sox nation is getting killed down here for their loud, rude fans, they are traveling like bed bugs to every away game and people are not happy. takes some of the easy-going spring training vibe away. but give the saux credit, they traveled to dodgertown with many regulars. Photos from Dodgertwon, including Mattingly, Lasorda and more...

Loge13 Wanderluster Ron Hunt has been in Florida the past few days. We posted Hunt’s slideshow of his journey to Tradition Field yesterday.

Ron also visited Dodgertown, which like our beloved Shea Stadium, is doomed. In fact, in less than a week, the Dodger’s famous Spring Training site will be no more. Here is a slide show of day one of Ron Hunt’s visit to Dodgertown:

More photos from roving Loge13’er Ron Hunt (You can see the first batch here). The bathroom still life alone is worth the price of admission.

The Mets are playing the Astros right now. Valentin is in the starting lineup, way ahead of schedule. Good news or sign of desperation?

Despite the Wilpons attempt to re-create Shea, the scoreboard is in leftfield and the Mets dugout is in the third base side, go figure.

Advertising in the bathrooms but they were very clean, Leon Hess would be happy.

Loge13.com’s own Ron Hunt is down in Florida. He sent some awesome photos to share. The Mets played the Marlins Saturday and lost 12–4, mostly due to Pelfrey’s miserable outing (7 runs allowed). Most of the starters who can walk played in the game.

ATM I can’t post a slide show of the photos so I’ll put up what I can:

TadFiedl_030808Tradition Field in St. Lucie, built for the Mets, remodeled in 2003, and their home since their relocation from St. Petersburg in 1988, looks like many minor league parks built recently such as Newark, Bridgeport, and Hudson Valley in our area.

Sepia toned photos of Mets history, a la Shea, dot the luxury boxes.

I was glad to see Schneider warming up Pelfrey before the game.
