IT WAS NO BETTER ON TV

'A Front-Row Seat. To Misery.' (NY Times, 4/02/16)


Shock. Anger. Agony. Pain. Behold the faces of Mets fans in this picture, taken by Chang W. Lee of The New York Times as the Royals' Eric Hosmer dived safely home to tie the score in the ninth inning of Game 5 of last year's World Series. Three innings later, the Royals scored five runs to win the championship. After Mets officials declined to help us identify any of the people in the photo, we managed to track down 11 of them. With the Mets and the Royals set to begin a new season when they play on Sunday, we asked those with the best view of the play to relive it.
