We all know the Mets signed Jose Reyes Saturday to help shore up the offense basically after the Mets got swept at home by the Brave last week. I covered my thoughts on the signing yesterday on the blog, so I'm not going to rehash that again here. I'm just going to do a quick run through of what I saw in Coney Island yesterday.
Before the game Reyes was signing autographs for fans on the field. Fans seemed very happy to have him back in the organization. Some fans were yelling to him in Spanish(couldn't understand it) but I think it was basically welcome back to which Reyes waved,smiled, and gave a thumbs up. This was happening during warm up.
When Reyes was announced in the starting line up, MCU Ballpark was loud with cheers and applause. At the first at bat for Reyes (he led off for the Cyclones), there was the traditional Jose Jose Jose sing song chant. The PA piped in a recording of it too to help along with the crowd.
Reyes during the whole game seemed appreciative of the fans who showed up to welcome him back to NYC.
After the game, I would say about a 100 fans were waiting outside of the ballpark in the parking lot (the wrong entrance btw) for Reyes to come out. They were doing the Jose sing song to try to get him outside.
One of my friends said they saw on snapchat that he was still at MCU until 9/10 pm.
I think that's everything.
