Throughout the afternoon, MetsBlog.com's Matthew Cerrone will be touring Citi Field and the remains of Shea Stadium while providing updates via text message, which I will relay.

...Updated...1:05PM...

The concession area at Citi Field will include a Shake Shack, beer island, and a taco stand. Beyond center field will be a Wiffle Ball field.

...Updated...1:15PM...

Standing in the left field concourse you can feel a "pretty rapid wind swirling" coming from home plate.

...Updated...1:18PM...

The luxury boxes, which sit approximately 30 rows back from home plate, have a sliding door with outside seats. According to Cerrone, the luxury boxes are, '@$%#@$%# awesome!'

Also, all of the seats around and behind home plate are cushioned.

...Updated...1:26PM...

Shea Stadium is all ripped up and full of concrete block. "Awful."

...Updated...1:32PM...

Citi Field feels a lot like Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

...Updated...1:53PM...

Despite having approximately 10,000 less seats, it feels like there are seats everywhere.

...Updated...2:14PM...

The old apple will be on display inside Citi Field, while a new apple will be in the canister under the scoreboard in center field.
