This weekend, New York Mets fans will receive a blast from the past, at least in terms of ticket prices.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Mets’ previous home, Shea Stadium, the team will roll back the cost of select seats to their 1964 prices. This promotional offer will take place during a three-game stand against the Atlanta Braves on April 18, 19 and 20.
For $3.50, fans can get a ticket in the Promenade Outfield. For $19.64, they can sit in a left field baseline box seat.
Of course, some would argue that those prices might still be too steep for the struggling Mets, who recently sidelined Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson due to injuries. You can get a coffee and a bagel for $3.50, which may give you more satisfaction too!
Hmm, maybe the team should have turned back time to the 1969 “Miracle Mets.” We’re sure everyone could get behind that idea!
