Wally at the Bat: A Liberal Arts Symposium on Baseball  

Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Steve Klein grew up with the New York Mets — literally — and told the audience how he went to Mets games with his father and grandfather, and has shared his love of the game and of the team with his son and daughter. Klein attended the very first game played in Shea Stadium with his grandfather and took his daughter to the very last game played at Shea Stadium in 2008. He was also at the stadium — and in the on-field celebration — when the Amazing Mets stunned the world and won the 1969 World Series, which Klein said, "Remains, to me, the most unlikely turnaround in professional sports."
