It’s Amazin’ Mets Night this Sunday, August 9th, at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater as the Somerset Patriots take on the Sugarland Skeeters. 1969 World Series Champs Art Shamsky, Ed Kranepool and Ed Charles are scheduled to appear at the ballpark and there will be a team autograph session with the Somerset Patriots from 4-4:25 p.m. prior to the 5:05 p.m. first pitch.
The New York Mets and Old Dominion Freight Line are inviting fans to a spring training sendoff event at Citi Field on Monday, February 15th.
This will be “truck day,” the day when the team packs up the equipment truck for its drive to Port St. Lucie, Fla., which always seemed like a bigger deal as a symbol that spring was inching closer than something I actually needed to go see.
But there will be more to do at Monday’s event.
Four members of the New York Mets Hall of Fame are scheduled to sign autographs at MAB Celebrity Services’ “That ’90s Show” on Sunday, October 26th. The weekend event, which begins on Saturday, October 25th, will be held at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights-Meadowlands.
The former Mets stars are Jerry Koosman (autographs are $39), Cleon Jones ($20), Bud Harrelson ($20) and Ed Kranepool ($18). Fans desiring autographs from all of the ex-Mets players can purchase a super ticket for $69.
The main focus will be a mini-reunion of 1994 New York Rangers hockey players on Saturday, along with a scheduled appearance by Hulk Hogan and several other pro wrestlers. Sunday’s slate of guests includes the ex-Mets as well as a couple of baseball Hall of Famers: Jim Palmer and Rollie Fingers.
