Citi Field felt like home, and the crowd was the reason why
For the first time I can remember at Citi Field, there was a sense of optimism and near euphoria in the stands on Monday afternoon.

The crowd seemed to be hanging on every pitch – a rarity in the first six seasons at Citi Field – and the support for the players was tremendous.
I sat in the outfield with The 7 Line, a section that was boisterous from start to finish, but the atmosphere in all of the other seating areas also seemed great.
Hopefully this is the start of a trend, with the focus on the field rather than having a ballpark filled with people looking into their phones or plotting what they’re going to eat next.
