Registration for the opportunity to purchase ticket strips and to volunteer for 2013 MLB All-Star events will begin, Thursday, October 4th for the general public at allstargame.com and mets.com/2013. Each strip includes one ticket to each All-Star Week event at the ballpark, two MLB All-Star FanFest tickets and one Official All-Star Game program. MLB All-Star Week at Citi Field includes the 84th MLB All-Star Game (July 16th), Gatorade All-Star Workout Day (July 15th) featuring the Home Run Derby and All-Star Batting Practice, and Taco Bell All-Star Sunday (July 14th) featuring the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and the Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game. MLB All-Star FanFest (July 12th–16th) will be held at the Javits Center.
Winners for ticket strips will be selected at random to ensure as many fans as possible have the chance to purchase strips. Existing New York Mets Full Season Ticket and 40-Game Plan Holders, as well as 20-Game and 15-Game Plan Holders that qualified for a strip offer before July 10, 2012, will receive information in the coming months regarding their opportunity to purchase 2013 All-Star Game Ticket Strips.
With thousands of baseball fans from around the world planning to visit New York City during 2013 MLB All-Star Week, 2,000 community volunteers will be sought to assist with All-Star Week and All-Star FanFest. Qualified volunteers must be 18 years of age or older (as of June 30, 2013), enjoy baseball and volunteering, pass a background check and be available to work a minimum of three shifts during MLB All-Star Week.
