I'm not sure if this was a well known fact, but Shea Stadium could lay claim to the only non-yellow foul poles in MLB. They were, as you most likely are picturing right now, a New York Met orange.
I hadn't checked StadiumPage.com in a while, so I shot the Mets an e-mail yesterday. Just a few minutes ago, I got off the phone with a representative from the team. He told me, and now I see for myself, that the foul poles in Citi Field are also orange.
"The ownership was very adamant about having the orange foul poles," Chris, the representative said.

I love this sort of stuff. Fun little facts and trivia like this are pretty much all I remember.
The other thing I e-mailed about will have to remain a secret, for now. Hopefully the team comes through with my little proposition.
