Its “Shay” … like the Stadium

Shea Hey …. where do the Mets play?

So amidst the announcement that Hillenbrand signed with the Angels, ESPN’s page on the player notes the pronunciation of his FIRST name.

Ummm … and just where have the Mets played for over 40 years???  It is true that the Mets are moving to a corporation-named ballpark in 2 years, but they DO still play at a stadium with the same name as Mr. Hillenbrand’s first name.  One would think that someone perusing a middling ballplayer like Hillenbrand would have heard of the name "Shea" …. and know how its pronounced ….

It ain’t exactly as tough as this fellow …
