07 Apr GET READY FOR OPENING DAY AT CITI FIELD
Opening Day for the New York Mets is rapidly approaching. And after winning the National League pennant last season, the Mets, and many of their fans, are entering the 2016 campaign with World Series championship aspirations.
So what should Mets fans expect when they see their hometown team take the field on Opening Day at Citi Field? Here are four things you need to know about Opening Day:
THE METS HOST THEIR HOME OPENER ON APRIL 8.
Opening Day at Citi Field is a sight to behold, and Mets fans will get their first chance to watch New York face off against a National League opponent this season when they battle the Philadelphia Phillies on April 8.
The Mets’ home opener represents the beginning of a six-game homestand against National League East opponents, too. After playing three games against the Phillies, the Mets will welcome the Miami Marlins to Citi Field for a three-game series before they begin an eight-game road trip.
THE METS ENTER THE SEASON WITH ONE OF THE BEST STARTING ROTATIONS IN BASEBALL.
Mets fans surely remember New York’s dominant starting rotation during the 2015 postseason. And now, these fans will be able to enjoy what could be one of baseball’s best starting rotations throughout the course of a 162-game season.
The home opener will provide Mets fans with their first glimpse of New York’s high-powered starting rotation, one that has the potential to drive the Mets toward many home wins this season. And regardless of who starts for the Mets on Opening Day at Citi Field, the overall strength of the team’s rotation means New York likely will enter the game as a heavy favorite as well.
THE METS FEATURE A REVAMPED EVERYDAY LINEUP.
Despite a strong playoff run last season, the Mets revamped their everyday lineup during the offseason. And on April 8, Mets fans will get their initial look at New York’s retooled lineup at Citi Field.
Offseason additions such as second baseman Neil Walker and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera likely will make their home debuts as members of the Mets on Opening Day at Citi Field. As a result, Mets fans should expect new faces in the infield this season, as both Walker and Cabrera will look to provide a boost to New York’s offense.
FANS SHOULD EXPECT ONE-OF-A-KIND PERKS DURING THE METS’ OPENING HOME SERIES.
The Mets’ opening series at Citi Field represents a new beginning for New York. Moreover, the series also provides fans with plenty of opportunities to enjoy unforgettable experiences at a top-notch ballpark.
Mets fans can receive a free magnetic schedule when they attend New York’s first home game of the season. Also, fans should expect a fireworks show after the Mets game on April 9, along with free Mets rally towels for those who attend the ballgame on April 10.
