Just a few loose ends from yesterday’s press conference:
The date for Banner Day will be announced shortly. It will not be between games of a double header (I guess that’s too old school) but after the completion of a game most likely a weekend game.
There is a website dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of the Mets, Mets50.com, where you can enter a contest to win Mets season tickets by submitting your Mets memories
Old Timers Day as we know it will not be on the schedule instead the Mets Alumni will be out in full force throughout the season. If you have ever attended a game and came in through the Jackie Robinson Rotunda while members of the Alumni were on hand you know how special it is to meet and greet the former Mets.
The team is putting together a 5 for 50 ticket plan where you can buy a ticket for 5 games for $50 bucks. Get it? $50 for 5 tickets for the 50th Anniversary
Big thank you to Danielle and Shannon for inviting me to yesterday’s festivities, it was nice to see Shannon running around on her healed up ankle but the sight of the day was Ike Davis pushing Jay Horowitz around in his wheelchair as he recovers from a broken ankle.
I have a ton of real work to get to today so this post will be it for now. Enjoy my soft and fuzzy side for today. Tomorrow I’ll get to real baseball stuff with the Mets which means my snarl should be back.
