Single-game tickets go on sale March 1 at 10 a.m., at Mets.com or calling (718) 507-TIXX.
Nice to know, but I wonder why couldn’t they have gone on sale earlier? I realize the need to sell full-season and partial-season ticket packages, but I think having them go on sale at Christmas would be a perfect time and make for a practical gift.
To me, there’s no sense in waiting. Once the schedule is determined, open up the phone lines.
The team sent a press release this morning and the following are some of the more pertinent details:
* There will be a presale for Citi credit and debit cardholders starting Monday, Feb. 25 at noon and run through Wednesday, Feb. 27. You can also meet Darryl Strawberry and John Franco at Citi Pond at Bryant Park, noon to 1 p.m. that day.
* T-Shirt Tuesdays begin, April 23, with the Mets-Dodgers game. Starting at $19, fans receive a ticket in the Left Field Landing with a uniquely designed T-Shirt. T-shirt tickets go on sale at Mets.com, March 1.
* The Mets’ Power Pack is back, letting a family of four go to game with food, fries and a soft drink for less than $100. For $23 a ticket, fans get a seat in the Left Field Landing, along with a hot dog or burger, with fries and a soft drink. There is a chance to upgrade to the Field Level baseline box seats for an additional cost.
