Earlier I posted a video from Digital Domain titled “Heads Up Display” that DD describes as a recreation of the classic showdown between catcher and base-stealer while giving it a sci-fi twist. After going through the video I wanted to point out a couple things not so hidden in the video. Just click on the images to see them in their actual size.
In this snapshot if you notice the Citi Field named displayed at the main entrance of Citi Field says “Citi Field XX”. Now XX in Roman Numeral is 20 but 20 what? Could it be the 20th version of Citi Field or possibly the 1st part of the year?
Here we see 2 things. One is that the Mets are playing the Phillies by the representation of the Phillies logo when looking up at the scoreboard and two that the Mo-Zone has been replaced by the Amazin 5 zone.
This snapshot is probably the most interesting of them all. If you look at the left centerfield wall you can see that there are 11 banners which is 4 more than the 7 that currently reside at Citi Field so it seems that the Mets make the postseason 4 more times between now and whatever time this video takes place in. The other thing is that you can see the retired numbers “37,14,41,42 and the name Shea” but you can see also 2 more single digit numbers retired that look to be the numbers 8 and 5.
Here you can see a number of things as well. In the H.U.D. you can see the game is in the top of the 8th with the Mets trailing 6-5. The Phillies have 6 runs on 8 hits and the Mets 5 runs on 2 hits and 1 error. It only displays from the 5th inning on and the Phils have scored 2 runs in the 5th 1 in the 6th and 1 in the 7th while the Mets have scored 3 in the 5th. You can see that SNY which is displayed behind the HR Apple is still home of the Mets broadcasts and Sharp is still around in the future as a Mets sponsor.
