NEW YORK -- The Mets are offering a limited number of $2.50 tickets to Wednesday's 1:10 p.m. ET game against the Nationals, featuring a pitching matchup of Johan Santana and Stephen Strasburg.
The sale is part of the team's season-long 50th anniversary celebration, with the Mets rolling back tickets to the $2.50 price they offered in their first year at the Polo Grounds in 1962. Tickets for Wednesday's game are available at Mets.com/MetsBirthday, along with the Citi Field ticket windows adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. Seats are located in non-season-ticket holder areas in the promenade outfield and left-field landing. Tickets will not be available on the day of the game.
Santana and Strasburg are both scheduled to make their second starts of the season Wednesday.
Roger Craig, the first starting pitcher in franchise history, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
