No I'm saying the Grill Room is no longer there

I think it was converted to the "Hot Corner" Nike shop

I love how people dressed up to do everything back then, I just love it...


also, they were smart enough to leave the wife and kids home and give their extra seats to their friends instead (i spotted 3 children starrig at that picture for 5 minutes)

It occured to me later that back then, maybe the games were played in the afternoon, and some of those people came from work.

But you're right about the kids too, I see one young boy in right about the center of the picture and that's it. I'll keep looking for the other too

Oh I see now - we are talking about two different things.

You're speaking of field level third base side, I'm talking about the Diamond Club.

The Grill Room is the pub-like restaurant on your left as you come out of the elevator to get to the Diamond Club. That Nike store you are talking about used to be 'Casey's' I think. That was the only place in the stadium that Johnny Lunchbucket used to be able to get a mixed drink.

Have they said anything about bringing it -- or a newer verison -- to the new yard?

It's goofy, but I like it.
.

Yes that is its normal position, its that way pre game as well.

In the renderings of the new park (mets.com) the Apple does appear on the hill in Left Center. No clue if they plan on bringing the old one or the new one

I dont know who that guy behind Karl looks like but the dude 2 over from our left is certainly Jon Lovitz.

Great job Z, but you missed one. To the left of Carl the Sign Guy, there is a kid dressed in black. Just behind his head is Paul Lynde.

Of course I remember Officer Joe Bolton. But as I got older, my afternoon tv tastes moved to more important things, like finding out if Annette was wearing a tight sweater that day. :)
