Former Mets player sues former Mets Player


Now this is an interesting story. I have no idea what is going on or how this is going to get settled but here is the story from the NY Post.

Former New York Mets outfielder Endy Chavez claims he was duped into shelling out $1.2 million to a fellow Major Leaguer — and has struck out trying to get his money back.

Infielder and fellow Venezuelan Melvin Mora borrowed the dough in installments from Chavez beginning in 2019, according to legal papers filed Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court.Chavez, 46, who played for the Amazins’ from 2006 to 2008, is suing Mora for fraud and breach of contract, alleging he “has failed and continues to fail to pay” back the debt.

Chavez hit the former professional infielder where it hurts, serving him a summons with notice — the legal precursor to a lawsuit — at a Hall of Fame baseball game in Cooperstown, Blit said.Mora has repaid just $50,000, Blit contends.

“He betrayed Endy’s trust,” Blit said. “We don’t think it was a legit company. We just think he stole his money.”

CITI FIELD SELECTED AS A WINNER OF FRONT OFFICE SPORTS 2024 BEST VENUES AWARD POWERED BY SPORTS INNOVATION LABS 

 

FLUSHING, N.Y., MAY 22, 2024 – Citi Field has been named a winner in the Front Office Sports 2024 Best Venues Award powered by Sports Innovation Labs. This year’s award recognizes 10 sports venues that have met and exceeded the evolving demands of fans and set new industry standards for success.

 

Venues across the industry submitted applications and responded to questions about their technologies, mobile app features, food options/dietary inclusivity, transportation offerings, mixed-use functionality, and overall venue design, and the responses were scored accordingly. The venues with the best fan experience were selected following this competitive process.

 

“We are thrilled to be named a winner of the new, Front Office Sports 2024 Best Venues Award,” said Katie Haas, EVP of Ballpark Operations, New York Mets  “This award is a testament to the dedication and hard work of countless members of our staff and partners who go above and beyond to ensure that we not only have one of the best ballparks in the country, but also provide a best-in-class fan experience at Citi Field whether you are here for a baseball game, soccer match, concert or one of the many other events hosted here each year.”

 

The Mets, who were previously named Front Office Sports Best Employers in Sports in 2022 and 2019, have made continual strides to transform Citi Field into a best-in-class venue. After installing more than 300 LCD screens and over 15 million total LEDs in 2022 and MLB’s largest scoreboard at 17,400 sq. ft. along with additional LEDs in 2023, Samsung Electronics America and the Mets continued to build upon these significant updates in 2024 with the installation of four new tight pitch LED boards including one 3D anamorphic display.

 

Additionally, Citi Field continues to offer top tier dining options, bringing fans delicious and exciting new local NYC options each season. Overseeing the culinary operations at Citi Field is Aramark Senior Executive Chef Jason Eksterowicz, who joined the team in the winter of 2017.
