Students will be treated to a pre-game meteorology lesson starting at 11:00 a.m. by PIX11 weather experts Mr. G and Linda Church, who will engage them in an interactive program about weather patterns and phenomenon. They will discuss some of the extreme weather we have experienced in recent months and take students behind the scenes at the PIX11 weather center.

Mr. and Mrs. Met and the Pepsi Party Patrol will also be on hand to entertain students and fire t-shirts into the crowd. At the conclusion of the program, the students will stay at the ballpark to watch the game.

As part of "Weather Education Day," Linda Church will also be delivering the forecast and taking viewers behind the scenes at the ballpark for "PIX11 Morning News" from Citi Field beginning at 5:00 a.m.
