While this is the Mets ballpark first and foremost, it is still a shared facility. While the Cardinals don't also play here, there is plenty of other wildlife that also call this ballpark home. Major Leaguers have chased balls down in those practice fields just past the outfield fence, only to find an alligator making the catch instead! Tradition Field is also home to thousands of bats… and we don't mean the wooden ones. They have their own home now just east of the stadium.
