We founded the Queens Baseball Convention aka QBC 10 years ago in 2013. The years since have flown by. We keep getting bigger and better with our panels and guests. Dan and myself just got off the phone with the agent we use to get our Mets Panel Guests and we got a good one. It’s definitely someone you guys are going to want to hear some of his stories about his time with the team. I’m going to make the announcement around Labor Day Weekend. So until now and then, let the speculation run wild!!!
The Mets raised a record gross contribution of $140,000 to benefit NYPD and FDNY designated charities, marking a 40 percent increase from last year.
Additionally, the event drew over 7,000 fans at Citi Field, doubling last year’s crowd.
FLUSHING, N.Y., August 28, 2023 – The New York Mets hosted its second annual FDNY vs. NYPD Battle of the Badges charity baseball game, presented by Your Local Ford Stores, at Citi Field on Thursday, August 17.
The Mets raised a record gross contribution of $140,000, marking a 40 percent increase from last year, going to UFA NYC Widows and Children’s Fund, NY Firefighters Burn Center Foundation, PBA Widows and Children's Fund, The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore and South Fork United Inc. Additionally, Ford donated $10,000 to both FDNY and NYPD for their local charities.
Former Mets Captain and seven-time All-Star David Wright returned to New York to host the game. In front of a record crowd of 7,314, FDNY defeated NYPD, 7-4 to give New York’s Bravest a 13-12 advantage over New York’s Finest in the historic battle.
We went from the smart move to hand out vouchers to the crowd coming into the stadium as mandated by MLB to the Mets not expecting a logjam of folks trying to get down the stairs in the Rotunda and then trying to get to the one exit that was giving out the baseball giveaway. I didn't grab a pic of it but the Mets got lucky that no one got hurt.

Quick rundown of getting to to and into Citi Field. No problems at all. No traffic. Could walk right in. Staff friendly and courteous. It was all great. Grabbed a pastrami sandwich. started watching the game. Then we got to the game. This is the second game I feel like the Mets have sucked the life out of me for the second straight games. I mean get its going to worse before it gets better. The fans you can tell feel defeated but yet there was a bigger crowd there then i thought there would be. Diaz bobblehead giveaway of course. I am looking at my remaining games and saying thank goodness I only have three left. Id on't think I could up with more than that.

What’s going on with the Pirates yellow bill?
First of all Wrestlemania is like 8 months away from this game and ti doesn't say anything about what LA Knight is going to be doing there. There doesn't seem like any kind of promotion is going on. It's a few days after Summer Slam. This is baffling to me.
