No '86 celebration on 25th anniversary

3/7/2011

The Mets did honor the 1986 championship team on the 20th anniversary, but I'm hearing there will not be such a celebration this year, on anniversary No. 25.

It costs a lot to assemble such a group, but word from one '86 Met is it is more related to a new regime coming in and wanting to establish its own identity, which has happened before.

Still, there should be moments this year when individual players from that championship team are recognized.
