I had the pleasure to visit awesome Citi Field, the unique new home of the New York Mets, in June 2011.

Built in 2009, Citi Field has a capacity of 41,800. It has over 15,000 fewer seats than Shea Stadium. All the seats in the park are green - in an homage to the Polo Grounds, longtime home of the baseball Giants and the original home of the Mets -  The exterior facade is reminiscent of Ebbets Field.

The front entrance of Citi Field features a rotunda named after Brooklyn Dodgers legend Jackie Robinson and honors his life and accomplishments. Engraved into the rotunda are words and larger-than-life images that defined Robinson's nine values: Courage, Excellence, Persistence, Justice, Teamwork, Commitment, Citizenship, Determination and Integrity. Robinson's famous quote: "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives," is engraved into the upper ring of the rotunda. There is also an 8-foot  sculpture of Robinson's number 42.

The Mets Hall of Fame & Museum is located adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and opened on April 5, 2010. The museum includes plaques honoring the inductees of the New York Mets Hall of Fame, the team's World Series trophies from 1969 and 1986, as well as artifacts on loan from former players and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Here is Citi Field, complete with Home Run Apple from Shea Stadium.
