Strikeouts = Savings: Mets Strikeouts for Savings returns this week

Fans save money during June 9-16 homestand when Mets pitchers accumulate strikeouts this week, June 1-7 at San Diego and Arizona

FLUSHING, N.Y., June 1, 2015 - The New York Mets today announced the return of the popular "Strikeouts for Savings" promotion when the Mets visit the San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks for a seven-game road trip June 1-7. For each strikeout recorded by Mets pitching during both series vs. the Padres and Diamondbacks, fans will save 1% off the box office ticket price for select seats during the next Mets homestand June 9-16 when the Mets host the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, NL East rival Atlanta Braves and Interleague opponent Toronto Blue Jays.

Through this limited time offer, fans will save on the purchase price for tickets to games June 9-16 on a first-come, first-serve basis for the following sections: Baseline Box, Left Field Landing and Promenade Outfield. For example, if Mets pitchers record 50 strikeouts, fans save 50%, 40 strikeouts would result in a 40% discount, etc. The more strikeouts Mets pitchers record, the greater savings for fans. Mets pitchers are averaging approximately eight strikeouts per game this season.

Tickets for this promotion will be based on availability and go on sale within one hour after the conclusion of the Mets-Diamondbacks game this Sunday, June 7 at Mets.com/Strikeouts.

Tickets also will be available over the phone Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. by calling 718-507-TIXX. The offer concludes Tuesday, June 16 at 8:00 p.m. All prices will round to the nearest dollar using traditional rounding techniques and ticket, order and delivery fees still apply.
