FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The New York Mets will once again host "Fairfield University Night" at Citi Field when the Mets play their division rivals, the Atlanta Braves, on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m.
The first 1,000 fans to purchase tickets through the Fairfield group will receive a customized Mets’ hat featuring the Fairfield Stags' logo.
Specially-priced Fairfield University seating is available in the Big Apple Reserved Section for $20.
Additional information is available at the Stags' website.
“After the success of last year’s event, we’re excited to continue our partnership with the New York Mets,” said Jennifer Anderson, vice president for Marketing and Communications at the university. “Fairfield University has a tremendous base of alumni, fans and supporters in New York City, and it is always a special occasion when we can bring them all together at a venue like Citi Field.”
More than 700 students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends gathered at the stadium last September for the event's inauguration.
The game began with Lucas the Stag throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, with Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon looking on.
Lucas spent the morning and afternoon visiting landmarks and Fairfield alumni in New York City, including an appearance on NBC’s "Today Show."
