NY METS ANNOUNCE EXPANSION OF CITI FIELD FANWALK FOR 2012

The Mets have announced today that they are expanding the Fanwalk where you can purchase a brick with this years 50th Anniversary patch on it. I have a brick from when the Mets first offered them for the Fanwalk, in fact when you purchase a Fanwalk brick you get one on either the first or third base side outside of Citi Field and you get one for your home, mine is on the mantle of the fireplace in my dining room so when family and friends who are Highlander fans they must stare at it while having dinner.

Here is the release put out by the Mets on how who can purchase your Fanwalk Brick:

FLUSHING, N.Y., November 2 – The New York Mets today announced the expansion of the Citi Field Fanwalk to include a new offering of bricks in honor of the franchise’s 50th anniversary to be installed for the 2012 season along the first and third base sides of the ballpark outside the Hodges VIP and Seaver VIP entrances. Citi Field Fanwalk: Mets 50th Anniversary commemorative bricks will provide fans the opportunity to recognize their families, friends, and favorite Mets memories since the franchise first began play in 1962.

 

Bricks are on sale now at Mets.com/Fanwalk or by phone at 877-NYM-WALK (696-9255).

 

The first two editions of Citi Field Fanwalk bricks sold out with fans purchasing more than 24,000 bricks.  The first offering of bricks directly outside the Jackie Robinson Rotunda was installed prior to the inaugural season at the new Mets home in 2009.  The Fanwalk was extended down the first base and third base lines the following year with Citi Field Fanwalk: Amazin’ Moments bricks commemorating great moments in Mets history.

 

Fans will be able to purchase bricks in three sizes:

  • 8” x 8” brick engraved with the Mets 50th anniversary logo or Mets script logo and four lines of text for $395
  • 8” x 8” brick with six lines of text for $340
  • 4” x 8” brick with three lines of text for $195

 

Each Citi Field Fanwalk: Mets 50th Anniversary brick includes a complimentary replica, with additional copies and display cases available for purchase.  All brick engravings will be text only, and each proposed message is subject to the approval of the Mets.  Corporate logos and slogans are not permitted.

 

Mets 2011 Season Ticket and Plan Holders will receive a 15% discount on Fanwalk bricks.

 

A portion of each brick purchase is tax deductible and net proceeds will be donated to the Mets Foundation, which will distribute the funds to area charities.  A registered 501(c) 3 charity, the Mets Foundation takes no portion of the funds raised to offset internal costs. The Mets pay 100% of the Foundation’s overhead to ensure that the entirety of a donation is directed toward helping others.

 

The Mets will reveal the design for their 50th anniversary logo and plans for the season-long celebration in the coming weeks.
