Something to remember Shea by

This item just came across my RSS reader from BaseballDigest.com. It's mostly stuff we already know, but still worth posting.

Read the whole article here. This is the piece that I hadn't heard yet.
    The final reminders of Shea Stadium will come in the Citi Field parking lot, at the actual Shea Stadium site: the team will place bronze plaques at home plate, the bases and the pitchers mound. The plaques will commemorate team greats -- Tom Seaver, Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter -- and big events in team history. The parking lot will be laid out to place home pate, second-base and the pitchers mound markers in traffic lanes.
