We worked out the website kinks, and are all set to release our Spring Training tickets. Thanks for your patience as we corrected the issues.
We have the berm reserved for T7LA and our 1,000 tickets go up on 12/19 at noon sharp! They're $36 a pop and will be available right here on our website. SET AN ALARM!
Thanks to the St Lucie Mets for whipping up the same great package for us as last spring. The one hour VIP access to the park before the gates opened was really fun.

GATES OPEN FOR US AT 10:30 AM (public at 11:30 AM)
What does a "berm ticket" mean? The berm is the grass hill in the outfield, and it's a great place to watch the game from. Very care free and fun. Bring a sheet, beach towel, or lounge on the grass. Your call. If you get in early, there are also picnic tables that you can claim, as well as a shaded area if you'd like to get a break from the sun. With this ticket, you still have access to explore the rest of the ballpark.
What about hotels and flights? Do you have a package for those? No, we only supply the ticket to the game and the event t-shirt. Through the years, this has worked best. Everyone has their own budget and can make the accommodations that best suits their needs.
Any recommendations on where to stay? There are no shortage of hotels right in the area. All of them will be filled with Mets fans. A short walk from the ballpark, and local restaurants and bars.
Any recommendation on where to fly in to? Most of us fly to West Palm Beach and rent a car. You can carpool with other fans. Some have even taken Uber. Your call. It's about 45 minutes away.
Will you be hitting any other games that week? Yes! Opening Day is Friday the 23rd, and a lot of us will be in town for that as well. Many of us will also hit the game on Sunday the 24th.
Where is the spot to be at night? Usually Duffy's. It's pretty much the go-to spot. From time to time, you'll also brush shoulders with players. Cool place with great specials all day and night. Duffy's also has a bowling alley, batting cages, arcade, and more. Kid friendly.
Will you be planning that bowling mixer again? That's the plan, but not set in stone yet. We'll keep ya posted.
Let me be clear: If you have Twitter and don't retweet #CalliesMetsProm, you suck.
For baseball fans, the gap from November to the end of February can feel like an eternity. But this past Saturday, the Queens Baseball Convention (QBC) at Katch in Astoria took the edge off for Mets die-hards.
