Lest we forget: Dana Brand (updated)

May 27, 2011 · 0 comments

Had the Mets game on in the background yesterday and heard the sad news that Dana had passed away suddenly. Update: Here’s the obituary from yesterday’s NY Times.

I knew Dana on very casually through his written work, including Mets Fan and The Last Days of Shea: Delight and Despair in the Life of a Mets Fan. He may not have been a household name, but he certainly left an impression on those who cared passionately about the team, including Howard Megdal, author of the new book, Taking the Field: A Fan’s Quest to Run the Team He Loves, and Greg Prince, author of Faith and Fear in Flushing: An Intense Personal History.

Condolences to Dana’s friends, family, and fans.
