"Luke Gasparre, 91, has been an usher for the @mets since Shea Stadium opened in 1964. "Back then, the team was so bad, a lot of people gave up their seats," he recalled. "They said, 'If I wanted to see clowns, I'd go to the circus.' But I told them, 'Just have hope, and someday we'll pull through.' And sure enough, look where we are now." At his age, Luke is the team's oldest usher. He has become a fixture at #CitiField stadium the way he was for decades at Shea. Tonight, when the @mets return to New York to play the @kcroyals in #Game3 of the @mlb #WorldSeries, Luke will be standing in his usual spot, taking tickets and leading fans to their seats. @michaeldappleton photographed Luke at home in Queens. #⚾" By nytimes on Instagram.
