FLUSHING, N.Y., September 14, 2017 – The New York Mets announced today that they are partnering with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz to hold a Hurricane Relief Drive next week at Citi Field to help those affected in Houston and Florida.

 

The Mets will be accepting donations at Citi Field next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (September 19-21) from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.

 

Fans driving to the ballpark can enter via the Official Lot G on 126th street and proceed straight to the fire lane in front of the Rotunda. Mets staff will be on hand to unload items from vehicles.

 

Donations will be delivered to the Houston Food Bank, which provides 800,000 meals a year in southeast Texas, and Mustard Seed, a community outreach organization serving Fort Pierce, Florida.

 

“Mets fans and all New Yorkers want to help the Hurricane victims in Texas and Florida just like the rest of the country helped us pull through Superstorm Sandy,” Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said.

 

“Mets fans and people throughout Queens and the entire New York metropolitan area have not forgotten how the rest of the country supported us in the wake of Sandy,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. “That’s why we want to give back to those who have suffered due to Harvey and Irma. This hurricane relief donation drive we are hosting with the Mets at Citi Field will be a great opportunity for New Yorkers to help our fellow Americans who are in need.”

 

The following items are in need by both communities and will be accepted at the drive:

  • Canned ready-to-eat items with pull tops: vegetables, fruit
  • Protein in pouches or pull-top cans: tuna, beef stew, chili, canned chicken
  • Peanut butter
  • Snacks: granola bars, breakfast bars, etc.
  • Water
  • Wipes
  • Toiletries: including soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, washcloths, feminine products, combs, picks, brushes
  • Paper goods: toilet paper, paper towels, napkins
  • Diapers (all sizes)
  • Cleaning supplies: mops, mop buckets, brooms, bleach wipes, bleach, garbage bags, bug spray (only new items will be accepted)

Mets Police Morning Laziness: Harvey Day is terrible and not fun.

Once again the offense let Matt Harvey down, scoring just one run.  How is he supposed to win games if they don’t score for him?  The Next Seaver’s career record fell to 39-39 making him a lifetime .500 pitcher with just three Harvey Days left!

To quote TDK himself, “It’s terrible. It’s not fun.”

SLACKISH REACTION:  I was working and peeked at the score and saw TDK had given up 2 runs in 3 ip and had the weird, “Hey that’s no so bad!” reaction.  Then at 9:30 I checked again and was like WTF and went on with  my night which consisted of immediately falling asleep.

I have noticed that even @mets gives up most nights.  They usually start all pumped and share highlights orly on.  Then as the Mets get their asses kicked they go silent for hours at a time.  Here, look….

If you want to know where Mets season  is right now , 6:37am, do a Google News search for Mets.  Nothing new.  Nobody wrote anything.   Total complete Garbage Time.

Tee time bookings will officially become available to the public Tuesday, September 19 at 12PM EST on stadiumlinksgolf.com and mets.com/Stadiumlinks.

 

As explained by Jon Stephens, founder of Stadiumlinks, “This event gives the public the rare experience of hitting some of the most memorable golf shots imaginable from nine different locations throughout the ballpark. Targets for each tee box are positioned on greens that are landscaped into the field below, creating nine golf holes that you’ll have to see to believe. By combining this with exclusive and intimate access to the stadium, we’re excited to offer a uniquely amazing experience that can’t be duplicated anywhere else on the planet, for each and every participant.”

 

Tee times are offered across the three days of the event, starting early morning and ending in the evening, with the ballpark lights illuminating the entire course under the night sky.

A premium upgrade is available during the registration checkout, giving participants the opportunity to enjoy additional perks at the event. “We have extremely limited spots available for participation in the event, so book your tee times early because we expect to sell-out in advance,” said Stephens.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: it’s a quiet Harvey Day out there

SLACKISH REACTION: The Red Hot Mets won again raising their record to just 19 games under. 500!  The Dark Knight career (34-33) pitches tonight in an effort to keep his career record over .500.

The newspaper is using words like Masterpiece to discuss Gsellman.  I didn’t see it but I do know a few days ago the newspapers were getting rid of Gsellmen so good for Gsellman.

That’s it.  I guess everyone watched football.
