As the Mets wrap up their season this weekend at their new home Citi Field, I thought I’d look back at the great stories contained in their old venue, Shea Stadium, a Robert Moses project that took years to get off the ground and has been populated with world class ball players, crazed Beatles fans, and one very mysterious black cat.
ALSO: A brief look at the creation of the Mets and the contributions of the stadium’s namesake William Shea
