Loge13 reader Paul asked in an earlier post
if we had made any progress on our seat woes with the Mets.
Indeed we did. The entire Loge13 crew is back together again and on the right side of the field where we belong.
For the 2010 campaign, we will be in Section 308, rows 7 and 8. Our own Ron Hunt went out to the stadium this winter and scouted out locations. Thanks RH for doing the leg work.
As regular readers know, we did not renew our seats up in Promenade Box 427 and were prepared to sit out the year (or the rest of our lives). Frankly, Prom Box 427 just stunk. The view was OK, as long as you are not a fan of left field. But the standing room nonsense behind us was intolerable. Plus it just felt odd to be sitting on the third base side after 24 years of being behind first base.
The Mets front office was very accommodating, no surprise given how poor ticket sales seem to be. And the weekday game plan is still intact. The only downer to the schedule is that there are no day games at all, except for Opening Day.
Obviously, the weekday plans are great for us. If they forced us to take a bunch of weekend games, we'd never do it. So my empathy is with all you Saturday and Sunday plan veterans out there. What are the Mets saying about just offering pure weekend plans again? Any chance it will happen? Let me know.
