Jason Fry and Greg Prince

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.

This Moment Was Foretold

David Wright as the Great Gazoo? So it was said throughout the broadcast of the Mets’ loss to the Rockies Tuesday night. Yes, the helmet looked silly, though Keith’s constant derision of it smacked of, “For your kids out there, remember to make fun of whichever kid looks different from the rest of you.” Anyway, we were on top of the coming Flinstones trend in protective headgear on April 8, 2006 when we posted this Jim Haines illustration of what was then the new Met batting helmet with vents and tail fins and whatnot.
