Greg Prince and Jason Fry
Faith and Fear in Flushing made its debut on Feb. 16, 2005, the brainchild of two longtime friends and lifelong Met fans.

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.

Frame Game

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.

    Am sure many of us have done the same thing, especially with all the material available on the web. The framed montage of my first Met game (late April in 1962 at the Polo Grounds when Al Jackson shut-out the Phillies 8-0I includes pictures of the starting line-up, box score, highlights, etc. Nice home made keepsake
