Shea Stadium held its final game last night, and to fans’ dismay,
the Mets lost 4 to 2 to the Florida Marlins. After the game, 42 of the
Mets greats, including Willie Mays and Yogi Berra, walked the bases on
the field. The Mets called Shea, which is in Corona, Queens, home for
44 years. The new Mets stadium, Citi Field, is in Willets Point, Queens
and will be ready for opening day next year.
