Jane Jarvis, an accomplished jazz-pianist and organist for the Mets from 1964 to 1979, has died at the age of 94, according to the New York Times.
She pre-dates my experience as a Mets fan, but at moments like this I
always look towards Greg Prince of the excellent Faith and Fear in
Flushing to put things in a way that I could only wish to convey with digital ink:
If ever a cold January morning called for a round of the Mexican Hat
Dance, this is it. It’s a good time to hear Jane Jarvis on the Thomas
Organ welcoming us to Shea Stadium. It’s a good time to lean forward in
anticipation of an afternoon in the sun with the Mets and a hot dog and
whatever the next nine innings will bring.
Spring training can’t come soon enough.
