The New York Mets announced the team has donated 4,000 tickets to military members and their families for Tuesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants at Citi Field.
Working in conjunction with the USO, the Mets distributed 2,000 tickets to Tuesday’s series opening game with the defending World Series champion Giants to all five branches of the military – Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
In addition, the first 2,000 members of the military who show a valid military I.D. at the Day of Game Ticket Sales Window at Citi Field will receive complimentary tickets for themselves and their guests. Military personnel can receive their tickets, limited to six per party, starting two hours before Tuesday’s 7:10 game.
Marine Corps veteran Sgt. Elizabeth Quiñones will sing God Bless America during the seventh-inning stretch of Tuesday’s game.
Today’s donation complements the Mets’ season-long policy of providing a free ticket to any active service member who presents a valid military I.D. at the Citi Field ticket office.
