Mayor Bill De Blasio was on MSNBC this morning and said "our plan is to fully open NYC on July 1st".
DeBlasio says “Fully reopen NYC on July 1st. Full strength”. So meaning 42,000 available seats at Citi Field on July 5th versus the Brewers? pic.twitter.com/X2RA1cOkUz— The 7 Line (@The7Line) April 29, 2021
Fully open to me would mean 42,000 fans at Citi Field, but who knows. Not even sure Bill has the final say on this. The powers that be over his head need to sign off, and only time will tell how that'll go down.
As you've probably seen the Mets have been working month-to-month on ticketing. The other day Cuomo stated that Citi Field can increase their capacity to 33% at the end of May, but unless the distance restrictions are relaxed, that doesn't add up. Even with the current 20% capacity, the Mets are already maxed out due to spacing regulations between each pod.
With vaccinated #'s going up daily across the country, hopefully normalcy comes back soon enough.
As for my job working on The 7 Line Army outings. Most teams in MLB are also in the month-to-month planning stage. Once I know what's up, I'll keep you all posted. As of now we still have DC, Pittsburgh, Philly, LA, and Boston on the schedule.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
