Met spam went out this morning, offering the faithful Citi Field Subway Series Ticket pack. You can buy a ticket to the Met/Yankees series...as long as you buy tickets to four other games.
I took a look at the process. After selecting two tickets for tomorrow's game, then a Dodgers, Phillies, Braves and D-backs game, I got my suggested price. $900.
BTW, they are only selling seats in the more expensive areas (Metro box, Baseline box, etc.), not Promenade box or other less expensive locales.
As Ron Hunt said, "The Flushing Flash
The soldout Subway series is now available because they haven't sold enough
season tickets or six packs and are now offering deals."
BTW, for the first subway series game at Citi Field, there are currently 3,141 tickets available on StubHub
. Presumably the Mets are holding at least an equal number of tickets. So who actually has tickets to this game, beyond season ticket holders?
On another note, Ron Hunt reports this parking update:The Flushing Flash
A flyer was handed out at the Southfield parking lot this morning, dated 6/9/09.
Now for weekday day games the $4 rate is in effect until 9AM, then full rate
$18. For weekday night games the $4 rate is in effect until 12noon, then full
rate. And for weekday games vs. the Yanks and during the US Open the commuter
lot is closed until 4 hour prior to gametime and then it's the full rate.
