Actually, he went to all three played in Queens between his beloved Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets.

He sat in the upper deck, basically unrecognized amid a sea of happy baseball fans. He had a Nathan's hot dog and cheered a David Ortiz home run.

De Blasio told The Associated Press on Sunday that baseball is "a current that runs through my life."...
