WHAT FANS THOUGHT
Most fans were generally happy with the event, however numerous people missed the meet & greet due to its short & early scheduling. A few people stated they were upset with the players sent (Centeno & Flores)
1 fan told Brooklyn Baseball Banter “First, I got sent by the Citi Field Staff to the wrong place & missed the Meet & Greet. It doesn’t help that the letter sent by the Cyclones wasn’t clear and had such a short time span [5:15 to 5:30]. Second: The Mets don’t draw well, so I don’t get why we got the view obstructed seats in RF as opposed to seats upstairs in the Infield. That great catch by Granderson in the 9th was missed because of the ballpark’s bad design.”
