The Real Brooklyn New York Mets Fan From The Beginning.

Richard MarshSenior Analyst IJanuary 31, 2009

I was born on April 11th 1945. I grew up as a Brooklyn Dodger fan but they broke this 12 year old heart in 1957. In 1962 William Shea brought the National League back to New York and in no other borough including Queens were the Mets more accepted and loved from day 1.

Below is a list of those who remember those times circa 1952 and for those not around then trust me the only place in the world to grow up in was Brooklyn New York. Enjoy
