According to the Mets' Citi Field website, in January 85% of the stadium's structural steel frame was in place. But because percentages are boring and the Yankees have already slapped a name on their new ballpark, the Mets have unveiled some fresh renderings featuring Citi Field's new logo to get folks excited. The Post reports on this exciting development, and points out that the "citi" is accurate to the logo of the corporate overlords, and "FIELD" is in the same style and lettering as old Ebbets Field, the design inspiration for the new park. The Mets have a slideshow of the renderings that should get you in the spring training frame of mind.
