A Sort of Homecoming

A few photos from Pedro Martinez’s return to Fenway Park on June 28, 2006. I’m not one to besmirch the name of a reputable mascot, but Mr. Met appears to be flipping the bird in the second picture.

I didn’t take very many pictures that evening but rather soaked up the atmosphere. If the applause for Pedro weren’t so loud, you would have heard my wistful sighs.

Pedro Must Play

Get Well Mr. Gammons

Final Score


That's his thumb, not his middle finger. Clearly he is not flipping the bird, but rearing back to slap that red-headed kid in the face.

Did you know that Mr. Met was the first "person" on the Mets to be represented by a bobblehead doll?

I did not know that. Wacky, wild stuff. /Johnny Carson voice

Mr. Met is a walking bobblehead already. If his head were inflated disproportionately, as they are wont to do with bobbleheads, the toy (err, collectible memorabilia) would be structurally unsound.
