Baseball fans gear up for Syracuse Mets first season

The Syracuse Mets will host an open house at NBT Bank Stadium on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Local baseball fans will get a chance to gear up for baseball season as the Syracuse Mets invite the community to visit the baseball stadium.

The Syracuse Mets are extending an invitation to the public to visit NBT Bank Stadium for an open house on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fans will have a chance to hit in the batting cases, tour the stadium and clubhouse and check out brand new Syracuse Mets gear. A Q&A session with General Manager Jason Smorol will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Last fall, the community said farewell to the Syracuse Chiefs when the Minor League Baseball franchise changed its name to the Syracuse Mets. The New York Mets bought the Chiefs last year, and signed an operating agreement with New York State and Onondaga County through 2025. The Mets extended the deal through 2043. The county plans to invest $12.5 million to NBT Bank Stadium. New York State will contribute $12.5 million plus a little more, bringing the total investment to more than $25 million. Upgrades will include improved seating, concessions and lighting.

At next month's open house, the Mets are planning a major announcement regarding the 2019 season as well. “The Open House is a fun tradition that we are continuing as the Syracuse Mets,” said Smorol. “It provides a great opportunity to interact with our fans that we have missed all offseason. We are so excited to kick off this Inaugural Season and welcome the Mets to Syracuse.”

Fans can buy individual tickets for Opening Day and the other 6 home games starting on March 2. Flex Plans, Flex Plan Plus packages, and season tickets are also available. Flex Plans are $85 and include 10 undated vouchers that can be redeemed at the Mets' ticket office for any regular-season Premium Field Box (Level-100) or Reserved Box (Level-200) ticket.
