Feel Good Friday: Mets Honor First Female Vendor
The Daily News is reporting that the Mets will be honoring Susan Rich during tomorrow’s game at Citi Field. Susan was the first female vendor at Shea Stadium, working from 1974-1982:
The Amazin’s are spoiling Susan Rich, 50, with on-field access during batting practice, a scoreboard salute and prime seats behind home plate for the 4:10p.m. game versus the Florida Marlins.
“I’ve never been on the field at Citi Field,” gushed Rich, a Mets die-hard and mother of two who will be attending with her family. [NY Daily News]
Good for her. And kudos to Fred Wilpon for setting this up – the whole thing apparently stemmed from a letter sent by Susan’s husband to the Mets’ owner.
