Citi Field Mascot
The mascot of the New York Mets, who calls Citi Field home, is none other than Mr. Met. With a huge baseball head, big smile and friendly demeanor, Mr. Met is one of the most revered mascots in all of baseball. On April 30, 2012, Forbes Magazine listed Mr. Met as the #1 mascot in all of sports. (source: Wikipedia)
Mr. Met was first seen on April 11, 1962, the Mets inaugural season and has been a main stay ever since at Mets home games.
You can find Mr. Met cruising the stands at any of the home games for the New York Mets. We have links below to the best deals for the 2013 season and other events at Citi Field right here at SeatGeek.
