This is exactly what I was going for when the "Down Since" onesies came out a couple years ago. I hit a ton of games as a kid (down since 1980), but have only one photo that I know of at a game. Times were obviously quite different in the early 80's, and I'm not even sure my parents owned a decent camera. Once the disposables became popular, we were more into those for capturing moments on vacations and whatnot, but I guess never at a game.
We did the same when it was time for our daughter's first trip to Citi Field. Bringing a newborn to a game is no easy task, and when the opportunity arose to watch a game from a suite, we were in. Let's be honest, when you bring a baby to a game, you can't really watch the whole game, and from a suite it's just way easier. Diapers, feeding, naps, stroller walks around the field level..... maybbbeee you see a collective 2 innings. At least you got that photo though!
Let me be clear: If you have Twitter and don't retweet #CalliesMetsProm, you suck.
For baseball fans, the gap from November to the end of February can feel like an eternity. But this past Saturday, the Queens Baseball Convention (QBC) at Katch in Astoria took the edge off for Mets die-hards.
