October 4th, 2015
2015. A year that I’m currently experiencing and trying to soak in and relish to the best of my ability. It’s been the dream season. The year that all us Mets fans, bloggers, players, reporters and viewers have been waiting for. Everyone was hoping in the back of their mind that this might be the year that the Mets play more that 162 games, and that Sandy’s patience will pay off. And now I can proudly say it has. The Mets fans are the greatest fans in baseball, and while they aren’t shy of expressing their opinion, it shows that they care and have dedication for the team they love. The New York Mets.
But the story doesn’t end there. This year was extra special to my blog and my confidence as a blogger. I appreciated communicating with all of you through various types of social media, and I got rewarded this year with opportunities that I never thought were possible for myself at any age, let alone at age fifteen. I was given the honor to interview Met greats like Mookie Wilson, Wally Backman and Art Shamsky. The icing on the top of the cake, however, was becoming credentialed at various MiLB games. While the New York Mets press box remains a few articles away, this was a major milestone and a personal core memory. From the bottom of my heart, thank you quarter of a million Mets fans that have viewed the new MetsPlus.com in just over a year. Thank you, NL East champions, for making this a surreal season.
“Luck will land our way one day, it has to. You’re a Mets fan“.
