Get to the ballpark on Thursday 3/29 to hang before heading in for the season kick off against the Cardinals! This will be The 7 Line Army's 80th outing (43-36), and we can't wait to get this year started with a bang.
When last season took a dump, "undefeated at tailgating" was a term that came to life. There's not much we can do about the wins and losses, but we can do something about the fun. And that's what we try to do each and every ballgame. This year we have 12 games on our home schedule and we plan to tailgate before at least each of the weekend ones..
If you're new to the group you're highly encouraged to hit the tailgate party. DIVE RIGHT IN. Introduce yourself and get the camaraderie started before we even get to the seats. If ya missed our Spring Training outing, this will be your first chance to meet the crew, and get the year started on the right foot.
We'll be set up at our normal spot just past the train station boardwalk. The MTA "Southfield Lot" is located on Roosevelt Avenue just next to the steps to the 7 train. Great location and a super convenient walk to the Rotunda gate. Check the below map if you're not in the know.
TIP: SHOW UP EARLY TO GRAB A SPOT. THE LOT SHOULD BE OPEN BY 8AM. SPOTS CAN FILL UP QUICK, ESPECIALLY ON OPENING DAY.
ANOTHER TIP: SIGN UP FOR CLEAR. THAT'S THE FASTEST WAY IN TO THE BALLPARK. IF YOU FLY A LOT, USE THE PROMO CODE 7LINEARMY FOR 3 FREE MONTHS OF THEIR AIRPORT SERVICE.
Our season ticket members will be rocking their 2018 jerseys for the first time. If you're joining us just for the day, you'll be able to snag your shirsey once you get inside. If you're interested, we do have some of the replica jerseys left. They'll be at our kiosk in S-2XL while supplies last.
Even if you're not sitting with us, you're welcome to come by. More the merrier, so tell your friends. You're encouraged to bring your own grills, drinks, snacks... but make sure you CLEAN UP after yourselves. Nobody likes a mooch, so please don't go rummaging through coolers that don't belong to you. If you're feeling generous and you'd like to share, that's totally your call. Come prepared.
Even if you're shy, try to say hi. We're all friendly.
The game is at 1:10pm, but it is Opening Day, so prepare to head in around 12:15 so we're settled in our seats in time for the opening ceremony and National Anthem.
LET'S GO METS 2018!
Come out to our tailgate party on June 18th before the Mets take on the Marlins at Citi Field. The game starts at 4:10pm which is perfect for a pre-game meet up. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
