Remember your first game at Shea? Stony Brook University assistant director of undergraduate admissions Chris D’Orso sure does. As Jason explained, Chris, one of our friends from the Crane Pool Forum, preserved a one-of-a-kind framed record of the June 12, 1982 Mets’ 6-2 win over the Cardinals in peerless style. (We’ll let it slide that at the age of six, Chris was rooting for St. Louis; befitting his role in higher education community, he learned the right way to go soon enough).
Isn’t this thing awesome? The clipping…the autographs..he’s even got a card for Dutch Rennert, that night’s home plate ump. Dutch Rennert!
Great job, Chris. Thanks for letting us enjoy it here.
