Shea Dressed in Red, White and Blue
Date: September 21, 2001
Prior to the game against the Atlanta Braves, the first major sporting event in New York since the World Trade Center attack, the Mets hung a gigantic American flag outside Shea Stadium. The huge flag gave approaching fans a preview of the patriotic night to come.
