Mets Opening Day 2009
It was a brand new stadium, first home game ever there. Mets had a great ceremony. I was in 304 for that game. I really enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the whole stadium. The Mets started the year off before that against the Reds and Braves, so it wasn’t there first game. The Mets had a great ceremony before the game, and slowly started the game.
The Mets played the Padres and were down, when David Wright hit a home run to right field. I was jumping up and down with my Dad, who was also there. It was a great sight seeing the first home run ever at CitiField. Mets went on to lose 6-5, but the atmosphere and new stadium would never be forgotten.
Were you there?
