Mets launch Military Monday at Citi Field

NEW YORK -- The Mets wore camouflage jerseys and caps for their series-opening game against the Cardinals to commemorate Military Monday, a new initiative honoring U.S. servicemen and -women at Citi Field. The club is saluting military members each home Monday this season by offering complimentary tickets, retail discounts and community outreach events.

General manager Sandy Alderson, pitcher Dillon Gee and WOR radio announcer Josh Lewin kicked off the program on Monday morning by visiting veterans and their dedicated doctors and nurses at the VA New York Harbor Healthcare Hospital in Manhattan. The Mets will also be honoring a Veteran of the Game each Monday at Citi Field.

U.S. military personnel with active or retired military identification will receive complimentary tickets to Monday night games for themselves and up to three guests on the following Mondays: April 21, July 7, July 28, Sept. 8 and Sept. 15. The tickets will be available (night-of-game only) in the ticket office lobby in the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, subject to availability.
