Did I do an immature headline? Yes I did! But I did it for a good cause…to get you to read this to create awareness for the Blood Drive. If you can, give blood and help others. Plus you might meet a 1969 Met.
The New York Mets will host alumni Ed Kranepool and Art Shamsky at Citi Field on Wednesday, January 9. The Mets legends, who are being honored along with other members of the 1969 team at the New York Baseball Writers’ Dinner on January 26, will be taking a tour of the Mets Museum at the ballpark and talking about their championship season.
The Mets annual Winter Blood Drive on January 9 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. will take place in the Foxwoods Club at Citi Field. Fans donating blood will receive a voucher redeemable for two tickets to a select Mets home game in 2019 excluding Opening Day. Donors must be 17 years of age (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.
I would be there in the 11am hour if you’re hoping to get a glimpse of Art and Ed…no guarantees….but anyway give blood will ya?
Also Mr. Met will be hanging at 1.
Also also thanks to the Mets for sending me a press release for a change…although technically this was a Media Alert.
