Shea Stadium farewell was low key but worked well

I thought the closing ceremonies for Shea were simple but warmly effective, especially that pitch from Tom Seaver to Mike Piazza, and the two of them closing the outfield doors for good.

I wish I could gloat about being there, and the symmetry of seeing Seaver throw the first pitch I witnessed at Shea in 1970 and the last Sunday, but I had a previous non-sports social engagement, so I watched on TV like everyone else.

Unfortunately I got home too late for the game itself. How did the Mets do?
