1. Last week of 1985 season. I was about 13 and had never had an interest in sports but something clicked. No idea why still. I’ll have to rewatch that Cardinals series someday. I’m betting it was Strawberry.
2. So many good ones from 99-2000 and of course the 80’s. Game 5 of the 2000 NLCS was like the most fun though. It was just a relaxing hang out blowout with the world series so close. Great party.
Least favorite memory? 3. The last game at Shea was pretty miserable, so was the Castillo game this season, I was there. I’ll go with clanging a ball I threw to Keith Hernandez off the press box façade at Shea. I was mortified.
If you could change one off-field thing...
4. The way the franchise interacts with its fans. It’s hard enough to root for billionaires and millionaires. It would be nice to see some compassion for the fans from time to time. Also, some class.
If you owned the team...
5. I’d bring back Bobby, I don’t think Manuel is awful, but I think Bobby may be the best manager they ever had, with respect to Davey and Gil
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.
Ticket office anecdotes
A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
