Blogger Becca Boosical wants the New York Mets to do more to honor team founder and original owner Joan Payson.
Here is my call to the Mets organization and my fellow fans – let us honor the woman who brought us our Mets. She is probably the most important person in the history of our team, because without her we wouldn’t be here. Lets do something about it. Giver her a gate, give her a day, give her the respect she deserves. Fans, if you don’t know about her, learn about her. … Let us honor our past, so when we celebrate, it is that much sweeter. LGM!
