A Braves Fan’s Ode To Shea Stadium

The Atlanta Braves have now played their last game ever at Shea Stadium. I’ve heard a lot of people talking about the great rivalry of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. And it really was a great one. It’s lost some luster in recent years but I have a feeling it’ll be back in the very near future.

I have to give a plug to my friend JB from the Braves Launching Pad. In my mind, it’s the best Braves site out there. I try to keep up with enemy blogs as part of my research.

JB put together a list of his five best Braves-Mets games at Shea and it’s certainly worth a read. Check it out here.

I’ve made no bones on this site about my feeling that Shea is the worst stadium in baseball and the fact that we deserve better. But now that the final regular season games are nearly over, I am getting a little sentimental about the end of Shea especially when I read about the great games this stadium has seen since 1964.
