The Mets, beset by financial and attendance problems, said the cost of season tickets will be slashed by up to 39 percent. Prices were lowered by 10-20 percent after Citi Field’s first season, then by an average of 14 percent following 2010.
New York drew 2.35 million in its third season at Citi Field, down from 2.57 million last year and 3.15 million in 2009. It was the Mets’ lowest total since 2004, when they played at Shea Stadium.
