5 thoughts on “Late 1990s Mets pocket schedules

  1. I love pocket schedules, and I’m a little worried that they’re dying out, a casualty of the Internet.The 1995 schedules, with Shea’s neon players, are pretty cool, and there’s another 1998 “Show up at Shea” with Bobby Valentine.

  2. I agree with Dave. I think the pocket schedule will eventually go the way of the 8 Track due to the I phones and apps available.

    There’s also a lot of pressure to “go green”

    1. The pressure involved in “going green” often has more to do with the other kind of green – saving money.

      I think that there’s still some value in having boxes of pocket schedules to distribute to area businesses, and there may even be a point to passing them out as fans leave the ballpark. Apps are good for making sure that your existing fans know about what’s going on with your team, but how do you get a casual baseball fan or an area resident who’s looking for something to do to put that app on his or her phone?

    1. I definitely want to see the Mets use “Defending World Champions” as a slogan again.

      Anything involving Citi makes me think of banking instead of baseball, unfortunately.
