Probably The Coolest Interactive Fan Game Ever

Probably The Coolest Interactive Fan Game Ever

Our team just got back from Citi Field's "New For 2018" event. Sure, all the new food items were phenomenal, and I'm so full you could roll me down Roosevelt Ave, but the Mets announced an extremely cool challenge that I'm dying to get picked for.

Citi is bringing a new in-game feature, "The Citi Community Home Runs Challenge,” to the ballpark this season.

One fan per game will be chosen at random to have the chance to take their best shot at launching a t-shirt using a custom-designed Citi branded t-shirt launcher from the first base line over the outfield and into the Home Run Apple.

I was picturing it being similar to the tennis ball cannon on American Gladiators, and it's pretty damn close. Thanks to Citi for the sneak peak.

Don't worry, Nationals, they'll be some kind of restrictor on the range so fans can't go rogue and aim for Bryce Harper.

Each attempt will be “worth” a $50 Citi Perks gift card, so if the shot isn't made that game, that $50 will roll over to the next game. Once someone wins, the prize resets back to $50.

The pot could get extremely high, and I can picture this being a mid-inning game that grabs a lot of attention.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
