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.

This Looks Like Fun

It’s changed venues, it’s changed counties, it’s changed months — and it’s withstood the onslaught of both COVID and the Mets’ own first stab at a fanfest — yet it appears you can count on the Queens Baseball Convention to be the same kind of great Mets time it’s been since it was inaugurated many offseasons ago.

This year’s version takes the field Saturday, November 13, running from 11 AM until 6:30 PM at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, 3232 Railroad Ave. — right by the LIRR station and just off of Wantagh Ave. slightly north of Sunrise Highway. QBC has lined up its usual sweet slate of speakers, panels and vendors, including Gary Cohen and Ron Darling; Todd Frazier; Omar Minaya; Jay Horwitz; Once Upon a Time in Queens auteur Nick Davis; Mr. Met (!) and a whole passel of people who love to talk about the Mets with Mets fans. Metsopotamia has come alive at QBC in Januarys past, whether in Flushing or Astoria. That familiar fan-fueled vibe is sure to carry forward as it puts down stakes for a Saturday in Nassau County.

I look forward to presenting the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award to the family of the late Shannon Forde at noon, and I look forward to seeing you at QBC throughout the day. Tickets are $25. More information is here.
