One of the talented photographers capturing what’s left of Shea Stadium and posting the evidence on the Shea Demolition page at Baseball-Fever, johnql, shot an Amazin’ image today, that of an exterior that is down to one neon Met flanked on either side by a few ramps. You can see the whole thing for yourself here. I prefer to focus in on the pitcher. Shea Stadium was built on pitching. Appropriate that the last Met to leave the building is 1 on your scorecard and 9 in the batting order.
