NEW YORK -- The Mets have launched a new ticket offer geared around R.A. Dickey's quest for a 20-win season and the National League Cy Young Award, offering three-game packages starting at $43 to watch Dickey pitch.
The packages include a ticket to Tuesday night's game against the Nationals, in which Dickey will try for his 19th win, as well as vouchers good for any two remaining home games. With Dickey continuing to start every fifth game for the Mets despite their six-man rotation, he is tentatively lined up to face the Phillies at Citi Field on Sept. 17 and the Marlins on Sept. 23. But fans are not restricted to redeeming their vouchers for those games.
Ticket packages are on sale at mets.com/RA and 718-507-TIXX, and must be picked up at the ballpark. The vouchers can be exchanged anytime at Citi Field's advance ticket windows, or on the day of each game at the box office.
Dickey entered play Monday tied for the Major League lead with 18 wins, and also leading the NL with a 2.64 ERA, five complete games and three shutouts. He ranked third in the NL with 195 strikeouts, and is vying to become the first Mets pitcher to win 20 games since Frank Viola went 20-12 in 1990.
