Apparently the Mets are chopping down the centerfield wall at Citi Field from 16 feet to 8 feet, but I think that’s an overstatement. I’m pretty sure only the little cutaway in front of the apple is 16 feet, and the rest of the center-field wall was 10′ 10″. Still, it will at least make the whole thing slightly more uniform, which is nice for aesthetic purposes.
The Mets brought Mookie Wilson and Bob Melvin into the fold yesterday.
