Modell's Launches Mo's Zone Event featuring Doc Gooden

Looks like there's a pretty interesting event going on today. Modell's is launching their new "Mo's Zone" are of Citi Field and is having a kickoff event today from 3:30-4:45 p.m. that will take place at Modell¹s Sporting Goods In Times Square (42nd and 7th) with special guest Doc Gooden.

Ah the good Dr. K. Just heard him this morning with Boomer and Carton, and it's great to hear that his life is back on the right track. He is arguably the greatest pitcher I've personally seen throw a baseball and I think we as Mets fans forget what we had for those years he was with the Mets because of all the non-baseball stuff that was going on in his life.

I'd love to go to this event. Turns out the "Mo's Zone" is a section in right/right-center field at Citi Field, where there are two field-level sections of seating. The Mo¹s Zone area is led-off by a 72 foot span across the outfield  warning track where the traditional padded outfield wall is replaced by a chain link fence. Directly above this span of fence is the Mo¹s Zone fan section (specifically seating sections #101 & #102).

According to Modell's, within this area will sit  nearly 400 of the most passionate Mets fans known to mankind.  The area will be full of energy and is uniquely tucked beneath the porch overhead which
hangs 18 feet out and over the playing field. Beneath the Mo's Zone lives The Modell's Clubhouse.  The Modell's Clubhouse is set behind the chain link fence and will consist of  dugout-style benches backed by five full sized garage-style overhead doors. Those doors open up to a private fan hospitality area which can accommodate up to 70 fans.

The only thing that will separate fans in the Modell's Clubhouse from the playing field is the chain link fence. Fans attending a game inside the Modell's Clubhouse will be as close to the playing field  during the game as you can get without being one of the players!

If you're in midtown Manhattan this afternoon definitely stop in to the Modell's at Times Square to check out the kickoff event and to see Doc Gooden.
