Mets Police is here to help not hurt. From the archives, May 2009 and a suggestion to borrow some ideas from Yankee Stadium. At least they did the banners...and I've since learned that the Mets have done the baseball cards thing, but it's on the club level.
Some more photos from my trip to Yankee Stadium on Saturday. I think the photos speak for themselves as for ideas the Mets could copy to make Citi Field seem more Mets Field than like a ballpark the Mariners could move into next weekend.
These first two pictures are the "holograms" that I heard of on my first visit. Depending on your angle, they could look like this...
..or like this.
Regardless, the Mets could learn from the Yankees and put up some pictures of their more popular former players.
I'm not going to tell the Wilpons who these players are any more unless they start paying me a consultants fee.
Another way to decorate walls is like this. This is over by the Yankees Museum (imagine that, a room that honors the team that plays in the stadium).
I like this baseball card design. To the left of Yogi is Gehrig, and to his left Ruth. The person cut off on the right is Mattingly.
You'll find this right by the museum.
This next photo is taken from across the River Avenue in the "old" garage, which is why its obstructed by a screen. I mean its not obstructed, it's part of the design of the lot, but I digress.
On the outside of Yankee Stadium they have photos of the current players. I didn't notice until I was leaving.
This next picture shows the entrance to something called a museum. There you can honor the great players and moments from the team's history.
Not the history of a team that bolted town fifty years ago, but the actual team you root for. Neat idea!
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.
