Banner Day Moved To May 11th

New, comments

Banner Day has been rescheduled to take place before the Saturday, May 11th game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Following ESPN's selection of the previous date's game for Sunday Night Baseball, the Mets held a fan vote to allow fans to choose when Banner Day would be held and ended up moving the date from Sunday, May 26 to Saturday, May 11. If you already had tickets to original date, you can contact the Mets at bannerday@nymets.com to attend the May 11 game, which is scheduled to start at 1:10 pm and will most likely air on SNY.

This will be the second occurrence of Banner Day after its long absence following the 1996 season. Last year the Mets requested banners representing the 50 years of Mets history and your favorite moments. Two lucky fans won a trip to spring training with a banner representing Mike Piazza's September 2001 home run against the Atlanta Braves in the first baseball game in New York after 9/11.

It's only 104 days until Banner Day hits Citi Field. The Mets haven't yet released any criteria for banners this year, but I suspect a banner of your favorite New York Mets All-Star would go over really well.
