As you folks are fully aware, I am a part of the T7LA and Darren is one of my good friends. I love going to the games with the T7LA, especially the road games. It is a blast hitting other cities meeting Mets fans form other states and cheering with them. If you haven't been yet you need to go. This is also what is keeping me having a "plan" at Citi Field. You guys all know I dropped my 1/2 season package with the Mets because I feel that they don't care about the plan holders.
We have another stacked season on deck, and we hope you'll start making plans to join the fun. We're hitting 10 home, 5 road, and 3 minor league games in 2020!
There's a lot of info here, so take a few minutes to dive in and digest it all.
The 7 Line Army started cheering together on 9/27/12 and has since hit a total of 108 (60-48) Major League games together. Besides our outings at Citi Field, the goal has been to cross off new ballparks each season, as long as the series lands on a weekend. This summer we'll finally cross LA off the list, officially closing out the NL.
2020 HOME GAMES:
- OPENING DAY: MARCH 26th vs the Nationals
- Saturday APRIL 18th vs the Brewers
- Saturday MAY 16th vs the Pirates
- Tuesday MAY 19th vs the Diamondbacks
- Saturday JUNE 13th vs the Nationals
- Saturday JUNE 20th vs the Phillies
- Wednesday JULY 29th vs the Yankees
- Saturday AUGUST 15th vs the Phillies
- Tuesday SEPTEMBER 1st vs the Rockies
- FINAL REGULAR SEASON HOME GAME: Sunday SEPTEMBER 20th vs the Rangers
In years past we sold our season ticket members jersey separately as a replica.This will not be an option in 2020.Instead, the fans that purchase tickets to Citi Field with us on a game-by-game basis will get a shirsey version of the members authentic.
Our members voted on a few jersey options, and the above one, designed by T7LA member Dru Jimenez won by a landslide for 2020. As usual, our home package members will have the option to customize theirs with a name/number. The game-by-game home ticket purchasers will get a shirsey version with no name, and with the number 20 to represent the year.
Last year we designed an exclusive limited edition Mr. Met bobblehead to coincide with our 100th outing, and in 2020, his wife will take the honors.
The game date is TBD, but we re-designed the vintage Lady Met bobble from 1967 to give her a 2020 twist. Fans that hit the game with us that day will get the bobblehead along with their ticket and shirsey,T7LA home members will automatically get it as part of their package.
Another promotional item for 2020 is a wearable flag.This game date is also TBD.We're seeing about adding grommets so you can also fly the flag if you don't intend to wear it. Like the bobble, fans that hit the game with us that day will get the wearable flag along with their ticket and shirsey,T7LA home members will automatically get this as part of their package.
2020 MINOR LEAGUE GAMES:
Each minor league game ticket comes with a special shirsey and cap along with food/drinks. These outings are a ton of fun, and you should absolutely try to join us this summer.Join our mailing listfor details as they're set in stone.
June 5th: SYRACUSE METS
June 6th: BINGHAMTON RUMBLE PONIES
July 11th: BROOKLYN CYCLONES
2020 AWAY GAMES:
Each away game ticket comes with a special event t-shirt and a game patch.Fans are responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements. For DC and Philly, we'll have an optional bus trip planned if you'd like to hop in. Before each road game we plan a meet up at a local bar or put together a tailgate party if the home team allows.
We'll be heading back to DC for our annual trip onSaturday April 4thvs the Nationals. Like in 2019, we'll be seated down the LF line on the field level in a solid block of a couple sections. This was a massive upgrade over years past. Ticket quantity TBD, but we're shooting for 1,000.
In the summer we're heading back to Philly onSaturday the 25th of July. This is a repeat ballpark for us (2014), and the Phillies put together a great package for us. We'll be taking over pretty much the entire Scoreboard Porch with the exception of some Phillies season ticket holders. We know this will be a pretty sought after ticket, but we'll have just 814 total.
Two weeks later we'll finally bring T7LA to Chavez Ravine. Dodger Stadium is the last on our list to close out the National League, andSaturday August 8thshould be a huge celebration in LA. We don't have pricing or seating location set yet on this, but we'll get as many tickets as possible for this one. This should all be hammered down soon. Check back and we'll update this post.
Two weeks after that we'll be shooting back across the country again to hit Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum onSaturday August 22nd. Since our goal is to hit every ballpark at least once, and this series lands on weekend, we just have to go. It's going to be tough for a lot of our usual members to do the trip to Cali twice in the same month, but there is a monster contingent of Met fans on the West Coast. We expect this one to be well attended either way, and have 1,000 tickets reserved on the field level down the RF line.
Lastly on the road for 2020 is Pittsburgh. This is another repeat for us (2015), but PNC is gorgeous and a must visit for any baseball fan. That, and it's close proximity to NY, and the series landing on a weekend was a no brainer. We have 1,500 tickets reserved in the LF bleachers forSaturday September 12th.
