|Each year, the PPBA runs an important fundraiser by selling tickets to go see one of the New York baseball teams play. As in past years, the money raised by these ticket sales will help us to rebuild a number of the ball fields.
This year, we will see the NY Mets take on their Eastern Division rivals, the Miami Marlins at Citifield on Friday, May 29, at7:00 pm.
This is a great way to enjoy a night out with friends and family and support your local ball fields!
Tickets were $23 each and are located on the Promenade Level. All ticketholders will receive a free NY Mets’ t-shirt .
Contact your organization to purchase tickets. There is no limit to the number of tickets you can buy, so feel free to bring friends and relatives. A list of our organizations can be found at this link.
Players and coaches in uniform who arrived two hours before game time went onto the field prior to the game. Here are the guidelines provided to us by the Mets:
