New York Mets Will Do Something Great May 27

Slowly, Citi Field takes on the identity of the New York Mets.

My (Evander’s) heart sings, wild (card) thing. It is not over Major League Baseball announcing the extra Wild Card rounds this season. Rather, it is the return of Banner Day. Originally the staple of a once-a-year, between-games doubleheader at Shea Stadium, this venerable tradition returns to Citi Field on Sunday, May 27, 2012, beginning ca. 11:30 a.m., preceding the 1:10 p.m. start of the Mets versus the San Diego Padres. Although we respect the concept of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda guys, could we now maybe think about featuring some Mets-only lore at that grand entrance?
