A Man’s Family is Buried Deep Inside Shea Stadium
Well, not literally, but the guy who started up the website A Piece of Shea Stadium says that his father, a steel worker, helped build the famed home of the Amazin’ Mets and put the initials of his entire family on a steel column in the stadium. Now, with the stadium set to be dismantled, he wants that column to be his.
The initials that were punched on the steel beam are said to be “JPL” (his dad) “CTL” (his mom) and “RNL” (this guy who wants the beam).
The markings are near eye level (I was about 13 years old at the time), on one of the ramps that people use to go to the upper decks and I think that the column that has our initials is near the end of a ramp, as opposed to the middle of a ramp.
The Deuce thinks its pretty neat that this guy’s dad put his whole family on a beam in the stadium. Its sort of a modern twist to people carving their names in trees. Still…its vandalism, and it should not be condoned in any way shape or form. Someone should find this beam, find this man, and fine him for turning the great Shea Stadium into a ghetto slum. Have you no honor?!?!?!
