NEW YORK -- The Winter Meetings may be on tap, and the Mets may have played a World Series game as recently as this month, but Opening Day 2016 is rapidly approaching -- now barely more than four months away.
To that end, Mets' Single-Game Tickets went on sale Monday at mets.com/tickets. The defending National League champions open their home slate April 8 against the Phillies at Citi Field.
The Mets recently released their 2016 Citi Field promotional schedule, which features two bobblehead nights (Aug. 27 and Sept. 17), a Noah "Syndergaarden" garden gnome giveaway (April 30), multiple fireworks nights (April 9, July 2 and Sept. 3) and the return of their postgame concert series (June 18 and Aug. 13, with artists to be announced).
