Citi Field tour
Our thanks to the Mets for taking the South Florida broadcasters and beat reporters on a tour of Citi Field on Monday. The place is really spectacular. Has similarities to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Pictured above is the old apple that popped up on home runs at Shea Stadium, which is now a parking lot. That apple is well behind the outfield wall, but it is a reminder of the Mets old home.
The Marlins, of course, will be opening a new park in 2012. Unlike Citi Field, which has a retro baseball theme, the Florida’s retractable-roof stadium will be more contemporary.
