Man, got dusty in here reading this one. Loss of a good friend is a tough thing.

Nice story; some may consider it a little odd.

I think it is kinda cool what he is doing. I am also sure it is highly illegal to do what he is doing. I can guarantee it is illegal in the state I live in.

Great article. The deceased man's brother lives probably 20 minutes from me in upstate NY.

I'd be fine with my family dumping my ashes at CitiField. Hopefully I lived long enough to see another Mets World Series win. Speculative at best.

We'd guess closer to impossible than illegal. And the illegal part wouldn't be the disposal of the remains,
but just bringing any kind of closed container into the stadium. Coffee cans, pill bottles, Tupperware sandwich boxes,
spare batteries for your Walkman or camera, nail clippers, &c', &c', &c' -- verboten! Confiscated!

The illegal part IS the disposal of the remains. I have went through this with a few friends in recent years. Like I said the law could vary from state to state.

Bringing in a small vial of ashes would be the easy part.

I think it's a cool tribute. He is probably the only person that would be willing to do that for him...reminds of 'The Bucket List' - Friendships like that are truly special.

I hope someone does that for me...

I've heard this happens all the time at Disneyland and at the Walt Disney World parks. Not the "flushing down the toilet" part lol, but scattering ashes in different locations around the parks.

We scattered the ashes of one of my golf foursome on the hole where he made his last hole-in-one. We didn't bother to ask if it was legal.

Country singer Tim McGraw got to throw out (one of) the first pitch(es) in Game 3 of the 2008 World Series. He had some of his father Tug's ashes in his pocket and when he got to the mound he pulled them out. I've seen a video of it somewhere but can't find it now.
