Anybody Know Bo?

Vivacious Fields equaled Victorious Shea 25 years ago.

If you watched the 1986 World Series or have seen enough of the footage, you know there was a vivacious lady who did her part to win the damn thing for the Mets by rolling, rolling, rolling her arms from a seat behind home plate while Red Sox hurlers hurled. The distracting maneuver was obviously effective because the Mets won the World Series (don’t tell Pythagoras how our logic works). Anyway, Mark Simon of ESPN New York, a longtime friend of FAFIF, is looking for the rolling arms lady — her name is Bo Fields. Why? We’re not fully certain, but if Mark’s seeking to contact her, there must be a good Mets story in the offing.

She’s been to Citi Field all decked out in her Mets finery, so we know she’s still rooting if not rolling for the home team. If you happen to know a way to get in touch with her, please contact us at faithandfear@gmail.com. Many thanks.
