1. I guess it was around 1983 or so as a ten year old. The first memory I have is them being in last place but Kelvin Chapman hitting a grand slam to left and going crazy.
Favorite Mets memory?
2. This one is easy. I was at game 6 of the World Series in 86 in the upper deck down the right field line. I remember in the 10th my brother and his friends making fun of people that were leaving with two outs.
3. This would probably be finding out that Dwight Gooden was a drug addict. He was my hero as a kid and just seemed flawless. I wanted to pitch just like him. Then to find out all that stuff and to watch his decline just killed it all for me.
One off-field thing you would change?
4. I would change where they play so I could get to see them more. It's like $14 just in tolls and over an hour just to get to a game.
If you owned the team?
5.If I owned them now the first thing I would change is the ticket prices for next year. The team is one of the top valued organizations every year and turn in a stinker like last year and still charge what they do? I would take a hit for a year to show people they deserve more for their buck and we know it.
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.
