Mets News: Mets Announce Jay Horowitz Bobble Head Night and Citi Field Sleepover Night

Mets News:

The Mets will host "Social Media Night" on Aug. 23 against the Tigers, and the team will give out a Horowitz bobblehead. A portion of each ticket sold will go to "Hope Shines for Shannon", which helps pay for medical and other expenses for media relations official Shannon Forde, who has stage 4 breast cancer.

There will also be a postgame concert by Third eye Blind.

The Mets also announced they will host the first-ever "Citi Field Sleepover" on Aug. 10 at Citi Field. Fans will be able to watch the Mets road game against the Arizona Diamondbacks from the field that night, and can sleep at Citi Field. Tickets go on sale July 25 at 10 a.m. and there are only 500 tickets available.

A dinner buffet, late night snack, breakfast and non-alcoholic beverages will be offered, and fans can meet Mr. & Mrs. Met. All attendees will also receive a ticket to the Mets' game against the Brewers at Citi Field on Sept. 28. The gates will open at 5 p.m.

Mets News and Notes: Horowright, Hawkins, Santana, Parnell, Murphy, Feliciano

Before departing for the WBC on Saturday, David Wright stopped by the complex and got PR man Jay Horwitz to slip into the third baseman's uniform. The idea came from an early morning tweet from @Jay_HorwitzPR, who wrote: "Now that David Wright has left for WBC, thinking of dressing up in his uniform today. Will anyone know the difference? Look about the same."

LaTroy Hawkins, who has yet to appear in a game for the Mets, is slated to enter Grapefruit League play during the upcoming week.

Hawkins, 40, cited the long spring training as the reason he has not been pitching in spring-training games since those started a week ago. He said he will get into games at a date comparable to past spring trainings.

"Spring training really starts this week coming up," Hawkins said. "That's the way I've always done it. The whole extra week we have for the WBC, I don't think I'd go for pitching a week's more games just because the WBC is starting."

Hawkins, a right-handed reliever, went 2-3 with a 3.64 ERA in 48 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Angels last season. In 42 innings, he allowed 45 hits and 13 walks while striking out 23.

Hawkins is on a minor league deal, but is a sound bet to make the team. He said he felt no particular urgency to get into games from the outset to impress his new employer and soldify a spot.
