Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Look Who's in Port!


Who’s that bearded busher? That’s no minor leaguer, but our (all but technically) own Mike Piazza, rehabbing for the Stockton Ports, the California League affiliate of the Oakland A’s. FAFIF reader Joel Lugo swung by Banner Island Ballpark Tuesday night, snapped a few photos of the Met legend and brought him a little good luck. Mike hit one out of Stockton, just like he used to do in Queens.

    Getting me started on this subject is never a good idea.
    But thank you, Joel… hope you gave him our love.

    My brother and I gave him very loud cheers…but no one can give him love like Laurie…
    He looked to be in great shape, in a good mood and ready to play. The local paper had quotes saying how excited he was and how nice the ballpark was compared to the last time he played in Stockton when coming up with the Dodgers. Lot's a Mikey fans there…most in Dodger blue. But I had my road blue and blacks on. Too bad the Mets don't need a DH…
