The first @The7LineArmy outing and RA Dickey's 20th win game was 8 years ago today.


I didn't realize this until I took a look at one of my walls today.

That's right. it is a game used base from September 27th 2012.Eight years have gone by so fast. It doesn't feel like it has been this long. Almost a full decade. It was the day of RA Dickey's 20th win and also the start of the 7LineArmy with it's first official outing.I've been a part of  The 7Line Army since day one. Darren is a close friend of mine and it is amazing where he has built the7line and the7lineArmy brands over the years. Congratulations to him and to all the folks who have come to the road trips and home games over the years. I have met a lot of my close and dear friends through the T7LA and I am proud to be a part of this group and to be friends with Darren and friends like Shoe, Kelly, Lizy, Drew, Evan, Meesh, Dan , MJ, Nancy, Bianca, and so many others that I would be writing here for days. Also if it wasn't for The 7Line I know we wouldn't have ever thought of trying to get the Queens Baseball Convention off the ground.

From Wikipedia
The first outing was the final home game of the 2012 season, September 27. Meenan had the idea to try to host a group outing. He began by purchasing 100 tickets in the Big Apple Reserve section, and then when they sold out, he purchased 100 more, and then 100 more. In the end, he sold 550 tickets to the game.

Now along with it being the first outing it was also a great bright spot in a so so season for the Mets and us fans. It was RA Dickey going for his 20th win and to help secure the CY Young award for 2012. This was a full blown fun hang with a group of fellow fans sitting in pretty empty stadium having a great time cheering with each other and hitting the highs of knowing that Dickey was going to win his 20th game. We all went crazy cheering after the game and it was one of the best days I have had at Citi Field. I am anticipating going back and being able to hang out with all my peeps again.
