Is it irony or destiny that 100 years after the Fred Merkle play the Chicago Cub are in New York playing against the team that used to call the Polo Grounds home?
Last month I blogged about the upcoming 100 year anniversary of the Fred Merkle play. I reached out to someone who said she's the granddaughter of Fred Merkle, but I didn't get a response.
If you're watching the game tonight, keep an eye on Louis Castillo (2B of the Mets) to see if he makes bone-head play too.If you're in Chicago, watch the game at Merkle's Bar & Grill.
Or is this the night Mets fans get to see their first no-hitter with Johan Santana pitching?
