Mets News: Mets to Celebrate Shea Stadium's 50th Anniversary with $3.50 Box Seats



Mets News:



The New York Mets today announced the club will celebrate Shea Stadium's 50th Anniversary by rolling back tickets for games this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (April 18-20) against the Atlanta Braves to the 1964 box seat price of $3.50. Shea Stadium officially opened on April 17, 1964 when the Mets hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates.

A limited number of rollback tickets in select non-season ticket areas of Promenade Outfield and Promenade Reserved sections are available at Mets.com/1964 and (718) 507-TIXX.

Fans will also have the option to purchase select Baseline Box seats for $19.64. There is an eight ticket maximum per order. Tickets must be purchased in advance online or over the phone; the offer will not be available at team stores, Citi Field ticket windows, or on day of game

Fans taking advantage of the Shea Stadium 50th anniversary offer will also partake in special promotions for the weekend:

All fans at the Friday, April 18 game at 7:10 p.m. will receive a Free Shirt Friday t-shirt courtesy of Caesars

The first 20,000 fans at the Saturday, April 19 game at 7:10 p.m. will receive a Shea Stadium 50th Anniversary Canvas Print presented by New Era

The first 15,000 fans at the Sunday, April 20 game at 1:10 p.m. will bring home a Recyclable Tote Bag thanks to MLB Network

Shea Stadium was named after William A. Shea, the attorney who was the driving force in bringing a National League team back to New York City. The Mets called Shea home from 1964-2008, and captured the franchise's two world championships in 1969 and 1986 at the stadium.

Video: Al Leiter (sort of) confirms Mets had a Porn Room at Shea Stadium




Today on The Dan Patrick Show, MLB Network analyst Al Leiter came on to discuss the controversy surrounding an explosive article about the Red Sox’ late-season collapse.

Leiter, who pitched for the New York Mets from 1998-2004, was asked if this supposedly toxic environment in Boston’s locker room was really that bad in the grand scheme of things.

Don’t all baseball teams do things like this? Weren’t there distractions in the Mets’ clubhouse? Specifically: wasn’t there a “porn room” in Shea Stadium?

It very well could be one of those mythologized things, like the Holy Grail or your friend’s dad’s collection of Playboys, that is widely rumored but never confirmed. Thus, Leiter could’ve easily dismissed it as a rumor. We would’ve believed him, and everyone would’ve gone on with their day thinking there was no such thing as the Shea Stadium porn room.

Except… Leiter seemed to be caught off guard by the question. He fumbled for an answer. He laughed uncomfortably. He talked about “political correctness” and how things were “different” once upon a time, and how the old ballparks had “nooks and crannies” where guys would… sleep. As he tried to explain away the non-existent porn room, the porn room seemed to exist more and more. In short: it sounds like ol’ Shea Stadium had a porn room.
