I'm still fired up about this photo from our outing down in Port St. Lucie on Saturday at First Data Field.
I missed an e-mail letting me know that Mickey wanted to come out to the berm prior to the game. Luckily I was close enough to see a commotion milling, and hopped myself over there for a quick photo. Shout to Mets team photographer Marc Levine for snapping it. If you don't already, you should definitely give him a follow (@msimages) on IG. Odds are he shot some of your favorite Mets photos.
Not sure something like this has ever been done. If it has, I've never seen it. A manager leaving the field and entering the stands to hang with the fans prior to a game? Can't get more up close and personal than that. Quite the surprise.
Prior to today’s game, Mickey Callaway made a trip out to the berm to say hello to some #Mets fans and @The7Line. pic.twitter.com/D0pDhCAO6u— New York Mets (@Mets) February 24, 2018
Mickey spent at least 10 minutes signing autographs, taking selfies, chatting it up with fans; just basically going the extra mile. Just like when he joined Brian and me on Orange and Blue Thing in early January, he doesn't have to do any of this, and could just let his managing do the talking. It's certainly a new era, and Mickey is going above and beyond with the fan base.
Sorry Skip, 650 was a bit high. The total did tip the scales at just over 400 though. Next year...
650 buckets. Challenge accepted Mick. Hope they have enough in stock @The7Line pic.twitter.com/ItBo1ImuCe— kelly leddy (@kellyleddy) February 24, 2018
We're back! Meet up with The 7 Line Army at Xfinity Live before heading in to the game. Like last year, we're rolling with 1,500 fans and we'd love to see as many of your amazin' faces at the pre-game as possible.
We've been getting the short end of the weather stick so far this season. Hopefully that luck changes for us on Wednesday May 31st at Citi Field. The Mets take on the Phillies, and as usual we'll be hanging out in the Marina Lot beforehand.
