Final Game at Shea: Game-Used Ball
Date: September 28, 2008
More than 56,000 fans filled Shea Stadium for the final game at the venue, in which this ball was used. The game was mostly a tie, until the Florida Marlins pulled away in the 8th inning and defeated the Mets, 4-2. Still, the Mets posted a 48-33 record at home in 2008, making the last season at Shea Stadium a winning one.
