As new Citi Field rises above Shea's outfield fence, we stand at home plate one last time to remember what this stadium has meant to this city and all of the beloved Mets characters who have stood at this plate... Mookie, Seaver, Maz, Piazza, "Mex", Straw, Carter, Backman, Dude, Knight, Darling, Coney, El Sid, Doc, Franco, McDowell, Kranepool, Harrelson, Agee, Cleon, Flynn, Swanny, Zachry, Marvelous Marv, Kooz, Davey, Gil, Yogi, Casey, Willie, HoJo, Jesse, Nolan, Grote, Tug, Kong, Hundley, Edgardo, Pedro, Reyes and Wright.
It's time to say goodbye.
