Breaking News: AP Reports Mets Likely Host 2013 All-Star Game

This is what we’ve been waiting for! I’m not a huge fan of All-Star games in general. Although baseball is easily the best all-star game in professional sports. Having an event like this at Citi Field is really exciting. I’d be thrilled to get a ticket for that one.

“We were informed by the commissioner that after moving into City Field, we would have an All-Star game but no date has been set,” Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Thursday following similar comments by chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon to ESPN.com.

The current hosting order is: Yankees, Cardinals, Angels, Arizona, and Kansas City. Read the entire story here.

The Mets Report Site Design

I’ve been tinkering with the design of this site for the last month or so. I’ve found some designs from WordPress that I liked, but not quite that much. I finally came across this great design from Chris Pearson at Pearsonified. The guy writes an interesting blog and has some great WordPress themes like the one that I’m using on this site. Check out his site.

What makes this site really stand out are the incredible photos from Ben Cooper at Launch Photography

Ben’s a good guy and a really talented photographer, as you can see from his great photos of Shea here. Check out his site for some awesome NASA launch photos and beautiful ballpark panoramas. You can purchase the photos on his site. If you enjoy seeing Ben’s photos here as much as I do, support his work by going to his site and making a purchase.

What could be more appropriate for the last season that the Mets will play at Shea than having rotating panoramic photos of the stadium?
