CITI FIELD: New York Mets
Citi FIeld is one of the newer ballparks in Major League Baseball. Ground was broken on the new home of the Mets in ‘06 and doors opened in ‘09 for the first game.
The Mets have struggled mightily over the last several seasons in their new home. Citi Field replaced Shea Stadium, one of the most famous ballparks in the history of Major League Baseball. Mets fans were thrilled to see their team move into the $900 million facility. Architecturally Citi Field is one of the most beautiful stadiums in baseball. It has a nostalgic feel with all of the modern amenities that fans have come to expect at newer stadiums. Like Shea Stadium, Citi Field also features the classic Home Run Apple in center field which appears any time a Mets player launches a home run.
Inside the stadium there is plenty to keep fans happy and entertained. The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum was opened in ‘10 and is located on the first base side. It features autographed memorabilia from New York Mets Hall of Fame inductees as well as the Mets’ World Series trophies from 1969 and 1986. Behind the scoreboard in center field is a FanFest Area that includes a miniature replica Citi Field, a batting cage, and an area for fans to play video games. There are also several restaurants and clubs on the various levels of the Stadium.
Like most New York sports teams, tickets are always in high demand for the Mets. Fans flock by the thousands to each and every one of the team’s home games. If you find yourself in the New York area and want to catch a game, you’ll want to order your tickets early in order to ensure you have a seat to the game.

Thrill of victory: The Mets have yet to reach the playoffs in their first four years at Citi Field. However, with plenty of young talent that is expected to change in the near future.
Agony of defeat: June 1, 2012: Mets pitcher Johan Santana tossed the first no hitter in the long history of the New York Mets. It took a fortunate call from an umpire and 134 pitches but Santana was able to hold the reigning World Champs hitless on a summer night in the Big Apple.
Mets Ticket Tips: Citi Field tickets can be very difficult to find, especially when crosstown rivals the New York Yankees come to town for the Subway Series. You’ll want to order your tickets to see the Mets early if you expect to have a seat in one of the lower levels of Citi Field. As the Mets continue to develop homegrown talent its only a matter of time before they return to the playoffs. When that time comes, like many New Yorkers say, “Forgettaboutit,” unless you check out the selection of Mets tickets at GoTickets.
