I’m off later to an event at the Time Square Modells (42nd and 7th) to launch the “Mo’s Zone” at Citi Field. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by the Times Square Modells from 3:30 to 4:45. Modell’s president Seth Horowitz and the CEO Mitchell Modell will both be there, as will Doc Gooden!
From Modells: “The Mo’s Zone area is led-off by a 72 foot span across the outfield warning track where the traditional padded outfield wall is replaced by a chain link fence. The Modell’s Clubhouse is set behind the chain link fence and will consist of dugout-style benches backed by five full sized garage-style overhead doors. Those doors open up to a private fan hospitality area which can accommodate up to 70 fans. The only thing that will separate fans in the Modell’s Clubhouse from the playing field is the chain link fence. Fans attending a game inside the Modell’s Clubhouse will be as close to the playing field during the game as you can get without being one of the players!”
I will say that often when I see an awesome piece of Mets gear and ask where it’s from, it’s Modells. Maybe I’ll be able to pick up something Metsy to keep me warm tonight at the ballpark!
