One Of The Most Memorable Days In The History Of The New York Mets

One Of The Most Memorable Days In The History Of The New York Mets

by Darren Meenan August 29, 2022 0 Comments

I've only asked the Mets for a credential for myself twice. Banner Day back in 2014, and this past weekend for the first Old Timers Day since 1994. 

I didn't have a real plan of what I wanted to capture. The initial thought was to grab a player or two for some sound, but once arriving I was more in awe of just getting what I could of the guys simply being back in uniform. 

Piazza, Strawberry, Kranepool, Hernandez, Gooden, HoJo, Bartolo, Wilson, Reyes, Stearns, and dozens of other Mets greats were on the guest list. In the same place. At the same time. 

Narrated by none other than Howie Rose, the day couldn't have been better.  From Jane Jarvis' version of the National Anthem, to a surprise number retirement for Willie Mays, the day was excellent. 

I captured way too much for just Twitter videos, or an Instagram Reel that could really do the day justice.

Instead of cutting anything, here's it all on YouTube. It's long, so grab some popcorn and press play.

Thanks to the Mets for the access, I might be asking more often now.
