Is It Time for Citi Field to Bring Back the Organ (Tracks)?
Do me a favor. Close your eyes, and picture you are at the game.
When you’ve done that, click play on the video below (you might have to open your eyes for that).
“No, Niko, the seventh inning stretch was never played on the organ at Citi Field”
And you’d be right, that’s because that was played before the game.
“Seventh Inning Stretch before the game, and you want that back, aren’t you a traditionalist?”
Well, not necessarily the stretch, I want the organ. Instead of the loud obnoxious pop music, I want the sweet sounds of a ballpark organ.
The organ, or, organ tracks, was in-use from 2009 until 2014, when it was retired in favor of generic tracks.
So Mets, you’ve done things to win back the hearts of old-school Mets fans before, why not bring back this organ? I don’t think anyone dislikes it, and if you use organ tracks, there is no cost associated with it…
