Mets Pick A Seat Event


I just got back from the pick a seat event at Citi Field today. This is for plan holders who want to upgrade to different plans or move seats.

Let us start off with this. I originally got my slot for 3pm Friday afternoon. Come on Mets! People work! How else are we going to get the money to buy tickets! I get they were trying to give the plan holders with tenure first dibs but they could have easily moved that to first thing this morning.


There were more folks here then I thought there would be. The Mets were supposed to let us go into the stadium at 9 am to go to look at the seats that you want. 9 am because 9:10/9:15. That led to some folks getting antsy and when they finally said you can go up it was like the start of a marathon race. Some ran up the stairs others waited to get on the escalator to go to field level. I was there just to upgrade my seats from a 20 game plan to a 41 game plan. The ticket reps were helpful to a lot of those with questions about seating and plan options.

It was pretty fun walking around from section to section in an open ballpark checking out the different seats and views. From what I could see there didn’t seem to be too many promenade seats available. Shot a pic of some field level seats.

Those tags on the seats are what you grab if you wanted those seats. Then you would bring them up to the Caesars club to check out. The line to check out was comparable to the Pat Lafrieda steak sandwich line down on field level. There definitely seemed to be a buzz. Also some grumbling with folks who had 10 game plans and couldn’t secure their seats because they had to upgrade to a 20 game plan(according to some plan holders).

I was also kinda shocked that they didn’t have the team store open. They usually do have that when they have some kind of event.

Here is some material I grabbed from today.





The share plan is new this year. I don’t know how popular that’s going to be. Would you guys be into that plan?

Mets named Club Retailer of the Year!

Many Harvey wanted to be made fun of yesterday which didn’t leave much room for eye-rolling at the actual Mets, but um, OK um congratulations Mets um yeah.   The bold is mine to make your reading shorter.


Flushing, NY., November 19, 2015 – The New York Mets have been named the 2015 Major League Baseball “Club Retailer of the Year” for their commitment to driving merchandise sales through creative marketing and merchandising efforts. Ten years after the debut of the award, the Mets have become only the second Club to be named Retailer of the Year more than once, having won the award in 2006. The Seattle Mariners won the inaugural award in 2005 and last year.

Since its inception in 2005, the MLB “Club Retailer of the Year” Award has been awarded based on a combination of fan interest, vendor feedback, sales, creative marketing and exceptional merchandising efforts. Reaching the World Series for the first time in 15 years helped lead the Mets retail team to equally strengthened performance on their sales floors at Citi Field. Among the highlights of their 2015 season were the highest single-game sales day in Citi Field’s history (Game Three of the World Series), record revenue of game-used memorabilia and standout retail marketing campaigns. The Mets authentication program, Amazin’ Memorabilia, has grown into one of the top programs in MLB, while Citi Field shops presented by New Era, Majestic, Nike and ’47 Brand, among others, saw increased metrics across the board.

“The New York Mets took advantage of a fantastic season on the field and turned that into tremendous success in their stores throughout Citi Field,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business. “Even before this year’s World Series berth, the retail staff in Queens provided Mets fans with a diverse and creative mix of product and promotions to support the team and the fans responded in a big way. The Mets earned this award with their hard work during one of the best seasons the franchise has ever experienced – on and off the field.”

“It’s a great honor for us to be chosen for this award for the second time as nobody has more passion and devotion than Mets fans when it comes to wearing our colors inside and outside the ballpark,” said Senior Vice President, Venue Services and Operations Mike Landeen. “It is a tribute to the Mets merchandise and marketing staff who help provide a wide variety of products to our fans and understand current trends. Thanks also goes out to Aramark for their partnership and insight.”

Previous recipients of the award have included the Seattle Mariners in 2005 & 2014, the Mets in 2006, Philadelphia Phillies in 2007, Milwaukee Brewers in 2008, Cincinnati Reds in 2010, Detroit Tigers in 2011, New York Yankees in 2012 and Los Angeles Dodgers in 2013 (award not given in 2009).
