A’s Ticket Services gets out of the office on occasion. Sometimes we just need a break. We recently left the safe confines of our own ballpark for some downtime. Where did we end up? CitiField in Queens New York, home of the Mets. What’s the line from The Godfather movies… “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in”? Something like that. Baseball has that effect. R&R from work is baseball. Besides, while in New York, and the Mets at home, how could we not swing by the brand new ballpark?
Take a walk through CitiField in photos.
Spring is in the air outside the new ballpark.
A grand ballroom entrance. Tributes to Jackie Robinson are prominent.
A list of levels at CitiField.
The field, the whole field, and nothing but the field.
The top deck ticket office.
The home team Mets celebrate a homerun.
If you’d ever been to Shea Stadium you might remember airplanes flying over. At Citifield planes fly over with no noise distraction.
Goodbye CitiField. Does this subway line stop at Oakland Airport/Coliseum?
