Fans Have a Chance to Vote for Banner Day

A Mets tradition, Banner Day includes a parade in which fans can show off  22″ by 28″ banners that express their love for their favorite team.

But when will it take place in 2013?

That’s up in the air at the moment, and it’s up to the fans to decide.

Banner Day is currently scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 26. After this was set in stone by the Mets’ promotional department, however, ESPN selected the contest for its Sunday Night Baseball telecast, making the start time 8:05 p.m.

The event is historically known for being held during the day, so the franchise is considering moving it to another day. The following day is Memorial Day, however, so the organization feels that fans might be OK with the event being held at night.

The Mets have offered two alternate dates for which Banner Day can be held, and fan voting is taking place on the Mets’ official website.

Fans can choose either Sun., May 26 vs. Atlanta at 8:05 p.m. — the original date – Sat., May 11 vs. Pittsburgh at 1:10 p.m. or Sat., June 8 vs. Miami at 1:10 p.m.

You can cast your vote here.

Voting will conclude on Friday, January 25, at 11:59 p.m.

Banner Day was held at Shea Stadium until 1996, when it was discontinued. The tradition was revived on May 27 of last season in honor of the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
