What the Mets Are Doing To Honor Ralph Kiner

For the first time in franchise history, the New York Mets enter a season without Ralph Kiner is some way, shape or form.

Kiner, a National Baseball Hall of Fame player with the Pirates and a Mets Hall-of-Famer as a broadcaster, passed away earlier this year.

The Mets honored Kiner prior to their season opener against the Nationals with a video tribute, a moment of silence and the unveiling of a special logo on the wall down the left field line. That same logo is painted on the grass behind home plate.

They will also wear the logo on the sleeve of their jerseys through the 2014 season.

Meanwhile, a Mets fan in New York City has been pushing the team to rename that same left field corner, Kiner’s Korner – a name created during his playing days in Pittsburgh which then became the name of his post-game show in his days as a Mets play-by-play broadcaster.
