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.

Day to Day Already?

You’d think it would be too soon for a 2012 injury update, but we received one worth passing along regarding FAFIF reader Andrew Hees. His uncle Phil reports Andrew and his family were the passenger victims of a car accident on New Year’s Eve. Andrew, a devoted Mets fan with whom I had the pleasure of taking in a game just before he started high school this past September, was thrown from the vehicle and had to spend the first overnight of 2012 in the hospital for observation (or “the entire year,” as Andrew put it upon his release). Happily, no serious injury for him, though his younger brother Timothy went on the proverbial DL with a fractured elbow.

We wish all involved a speedy recovery in plenty of time for Pitchers & Catchers.

    The young man will be fine and we hope that he will be able to put this tragic experience behind him with tender loving care from his family and friends, and hopefully a little bit from the orange and blue as well.
