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.

Bermuda Shirts

The most versatile t-shirt on earth just got a pretty good workout in Bermuda, the fourth nation in which The Numbers have been photographed (fifth, if we count Texas separately). The occasion was, as the sign in the background suggests, Bermuda International Race Weekend, and our wearer of the hour, Sharon “Inside Pitcher” Chapman, went the extra mile in completing the 10K course and spreading the gospel. “Several people watching the race asked about the numbers,” Sharon reports, “and were supportive when I told them that they were the Mets’ retired numbers.”

One assumes K26 has something to do with the race and is not part of an organized campaign to have a marker commemorate one or all of Dave Kingman’s 672 Met strikeouts.

If you want to show us what you’re doing in your Faith and Fear shirt, by all means, send us a picture and we’ll do our best to post it. And if you want your very own Faith and Fear shirt, just take a jog over here and order one up. Medal not included.
