NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The next time you head to Citi Field, leave your backpack behind.
That’s because the Mets just announced a new bag policy to enhance ballpark safety.
No one will be allowed to bring backpacks anymore starting Monday, May 20th.
That’s when they take on the Nationals.
Purses and other small items are still allowed. The cutoff is 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches.
