With complaints rising that Citi Field lacks a significant " Mets presence," team chairman Fred Wilpon said Wednesday that the team would establish a Mets Hall of Fame, most likely in centerfield at Citi Field.
"We're intending to have a Mets Hall of Fame," Wilpon said after the dedication of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. "We haven't put it into practice. We'll have a Mets Hall of Fame, Mets memorabilia. Things of that nature."
At Shea Stadium, the Mets had a team Hall of Fame display in its Diamond Club. Asked where the new display would be, Wilpon said, "We haven't really exactly said where it's going to be. We think it's going to be out in the food court, where so many people will get to see it."
The items from the Shea Stadium Mets Hall of Fame exhibit are currently in storage. -- KEN DAVIDOFF
