We are a little over a month away from the first ever Queens Baseball Convention. Come on out to McFadden’s Citi Field on January 18th to be a part of this inaugural event!
The guys over at Mets Police asked if I’d like to be on board with their vision, and I told them I’d do my best to help out in any way that I can. They’ve really ran with the idea while I’ve been neglecting my duties. Mets fans don’t have many events to look forward to during the winter and we wanted to change that. This is a gathering organized by the fans for the fans. Now comes the promotional home stretch.
This event IS GOING TO BE FUN. There is no doubt about that. We now just really need to get the word out to the masses, YOU.
There is a little something for everyone at QBC. Presentations, panels/signing sessions with Ed Kranepool & Ron Darling, exhibits, dunk tank filled with infamous folks from Twitter, trivia, a jersey parade, scavenger hunt & face painting for the kids……
The one event that is officially sponsored by The 7 Line is the “dating game”. Some of our single calendar girls are bravely putting themselves out there for their love of the Mets… and to possibly meet a potential match. This should be a fun one. I don’t know who is hosting the game, but I’ll volunteer my services and rent a 1970′s style tux if needed.
The committee has some really big things in the works that should hopefully pan out soon. More is added to the schedule almost daily, but for a full list of the current rundown visit QBC14.com
So, go grab a ticket. They’re just $35 and everything for the day is included. Yes, even the ex Met signing sessions. This event WILL sell out and I’m sure you’ll not want want to miss this one!
Major news! We’ll be organizing 10 outings in 2014 at Citi Field and 4 on the road!
In 2013 we sat together seven times. Five at Citi Field, once at Wrigley and once at Yankee Stadium. This year we’ll be trekking back to Yankee Stadium for the Subway Series and also venturing to San Fran, Miami and Philly.
We toyed with the idea of making this a season ticket package. The 7 Line Army is such a diverse crew from all around the country, so it makes more sense for everyone’s schedule to offer the tickets on a game by game basis. Hopefully one day we’ll need all 81 at Citi Field.
On some of the dates we’ll be tailgating before the game. After each game McFadden’s will be hosting our legendary post game parties. They toss complementary kegs our way for everyone in the crew.
As usual you’ll be getting a game ticket, limited edition t-shirt, special giveaways and one heck of an experience.

Thanks so much to the guys over at SNY.tv for asking me to be a part of this flashback video.
I remember this night so clearly. I was riding BMX with some friends at a spot in Roslyn and our plan was to head over to Shea around the 7th inning for the post game fireworks. We were broke BMX kids and at the time couldn’t afford to go to as many games. We were on the LIE (listening to WFAN) pulling past the Main Street exit just as things started to get interesting. The comeback was fully underway when my 1990 Plymouth Acclaim cruised through the exit of the Shea Stadium parking lot to find a spot. Hey, it was free and nobody cared.
We ran towards the LF gate and dipped under a gate that was halfway down. I’d do this often back then. After the 7th inning stretch when vendors started to leave, the gates were left unattended. If I was in the area, I’d roll by and catch the last couple innings of baseball. Again, it was free and nobody cared. The pre 9/11 era was a whole different world as far as security goes. Living on a tight budget, I’d try to push these envelopes as much as possible.
For whatever reason we went up to the Mezz section. If you remember the way the ramps echoed, it seemed extra loud even though we were the only ones running up them. Just as we exited the tunnel, Piazza blasted his line drive HR. Such a great thing to witness although we missed the runs leading up to it. The place was going absolutely nuts and we joined right in on the celebration. That’s something I miss the most about Shea. We haven’t had anything even remotely close to this yet in our new home.
Can’t wait until we make some new memories. Hope it doesn’t take too long.
Chances are only $5 and the winners will be pulled just before the signing starts. Come on down and walk away with one of these amazin’ paintings.
For those missing Citi Field, this photo was shot about an hour ago in Flushing.

News officially broke today that the Mets games will broadcast next season on 710 WOR. While some details are unknown one major thing is up in the air. Who will be in the booth? Howie Rose, long time Mets broadcaster, is along for the ride but what about the rest of the guys?
