Mets announce the return of "Strikeouts for Savings"

FLUSHING, N.Y., August 7, 2014 - The New York Mets today announced the return of the popular "Strikeouts for Savings" promotion when the Mets visit the Philadelphia Phillies for a four-game series August 8-11. For each strikeout recorded by Mets pitching during the series vs. the Phillies starting tomorrow night, Friday, August 8, fans will save 1% off the box office ticket price for select seats during the next Mets homestand August 12-18 when the Mets host the Nationals and Phillies.

Through this limited time offer, fans will save on the purchase price on tickets to games August 12-18 for the following sections: Baseline Box, Left Field Landing and Promenade Outfield. For example, if Mets pitchers record 20 strikeouts, fans save 20%, 33 strikeouts would result in a 33% discount, etc. The more strikeouts Mets pitchers record, the greater savings for fans. Mets pitchers are averaging more than seven strikeouts per game this season. Last year's promotion initially in August 2013 provided fans with a 42% savings on tickets.

Tickets for this promotion will go on sale within one hour after the conclusion of the Mets-Phillies game this Monday, August 11 at Mets.com/Strikeouts.

Tickets also will be available over the phone Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., or until the end of the fifth inning on home game days, by calling 718-507-TIXX. The offer concludes Monday, August 18 at 2:00 p.m. All prices will round to the nearest dollar using traditional rounding techniques and ticket, order and delivery fees still apply.

Tune into SNY Friday night (7:05 p.m.), Sunday afternoon (1:35 p.m.) and Monday afternoon (1:05 p.m.) and PIX 11 on Saturday (7:05 p.m.) to see how much you can save.
