Photo Of The Day: Jay Payton

by 2 December 19, 2011 0 Comments

I shot this photo in September of 2000 at Shea Stadium. Jay Payton was just about to finish up his first full season in the bigs and was in the running for the rookie of the year award. This fan showed his support from the Pepsi Picnic area towards Payton who played CF at the time. From Wikipedia: He (Payton) helped lead the Mets to a World Series berth as the starting CF in 2000, his official rookie year, in which he finished third in the voting. With limited duty in 2001 due to a torn hamstring early in the season, the Mets finally gave up on him and he was traded to the Rockies during the 2002 season.
