NEW YORK, N.Y. — Players on the New York Mets were greeted by eager fans who wanted to show their support outside Citi Field Sunday as the team headed out to Kansas City ahead of the World Series, kicking off this Tuesday.
Fans stood through the rain and wind just to catch a glimpse of the team and get autographs.
“It means a lot,” one fan told CBS2’s Ilana Gold. “I’ve been a Mets fan ever since I could remember.”
The fans can’t wait for their return at the end of the week, so they can cheer them on when they take on the Kansas City Royals at Citi Field.
The Mets will be back at Citi Field on Friday, but if you want to buy a ticket to that game you’ll have to pay up. Tickets are limited to standing-only, and they run at about $600 each.
“The fact that we’re in the World Series…I’m shocked,” another fan said.
Hometown rallies for the Mets will be held on Monday at Queens Borough Hall at 3 p.m. and on Long Island on the front steps of the Theodore Roosevelt building in Mineola at 5 p.m.
