Fairfield University Night at Citi Field Set for Sept. 20
The New York Mets will once again host Fairfield University Night at Citi Field as the Mets host the division rival 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 and special Fairfield events to be held prior to first pitch will be announced in the coming weeks on FairfieldStags.com.
“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. “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.”
Last September, more than 700 students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends gathered at Citi Field for the inaugural Fairfield University Night. The game began with Lucas the Stag throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Lucas spent the morning and afternoon visiting landmarks and Fairfield alumni in New York City, including an appearance on NBC’s Today Show.
