This is ridiculous. This is not how I wanted to wake up on a Sunday morning.
The Mets have announced that the actual first game to ever be played at Citi Field will be Mr. Wilpons’ alma mater, St. John’s University against Georgetown.
So for all of you who thought you were going to be the first ones in Citi Field for the exhibition games, think again. This is so the bugs will be fixed in time for the major league games.
I’m sorry. I thought that’s what the exhibition games were for.
I’m going with Mets.com because it was the official press release that stated tickets will be available on March 2 via Mets.com for $5.
I will find out for sure tomorrow morning and let you all know.
