No bids on lesson with Alonso



Remember when this would have been a hot ticket item to try to win? Now, is no bids being made yet because the love for Pete Alonso isn’t there anymore? Or is it the fact that the reserve is too high to open with? I think if the reserve was at $1500 that you would get some bids. I know it’s for charity but it seems since the Cohen’s took over the game used stuff and the Amazon Foundation that they try to get the big numbers but are also pricing out the fans.

Anyway this is what you get-

  • ITEM DESCRIPTION

    Hit it out of the ballpark with this Amazin' experience! This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity includes a private hitting lesson for one person with Mets First Baseman and two-time Home Run Derby Champion, Pete Alonso! The 30-minute lesson will take place before a mutually agreeable home game in 2024. This experience will include four Field Level tickets to an agreed upon game. The hitting lesson participant must be between 8-18 years of age. The Mets will reach out to the winning bidder at the close of the auction with all necessary details regarding this experience. Fifty percent of the proceeds for this item will benefit the Amazin' Mets Foundation and the other half will benefit Pete Alonso's Foundation.

Update:Mets Summer Parking Discount.🤑



 

Take advantage of discounted parking at Citi Field this summer – reduced to only $20 per car.

The discounted parking rate applies to Monday through Thursday Mets home games from Tuesday, June 11 through Thursday, August 15, excluding the Subway Series (June 25 and June 26).

Please note the following restrictions:

  • The regular parking rate of $40 per car applies for all Friday through Sunday games.
  • The parking rate for bus parking remains the same at the rate of $80.
  • This limited time promotion does not apply to the games against the Yankees on June 25 and 26.
  • Other terms and restrictions may apply.

This is interesting to me on various fronts. A) are the folks that pre purchased there parking passes as part of their ticket plans for during the week getting credits or refunds?B) does this show that the parking prices don’t have to be that high at $40 to begin with? C) how bad are the ticket sales during the week that the Mets are pushing this as a promotion?

Folks please don’t fall for this as the Mets trying to be fan friendly right now. In my humble opinion it seems to me that the folks that are in charge of the venue operations are starting to panic and see that the “fan frien…” Sorry.  I couldn’t get that out with a straight face. They are starting to see the fan unfriendly moves that they have made coupled with a team that is unlikeable/unwatchable is backfiring on them and they have to rethink their attack plan to separate you from your money.

Updated. Was just sent this about the planholder parking rates.
