About Citi Field:

A baseball team in America's biggest, most vibrant city deserves an amazing ballpark with state-of-the-art facilities. 

That's what the New York Mets did when the doors to Citi Field opened in 2009—ending the 44-year era of Shea Stadium, the team's former home.

Know Your Ballpark, presented by Don Julio Tequila, takes viewers on a ride on the 7 Train from Manhattan to Flushing, Queens, home of the New York Metropolitans, to give a look at the best way to experience an "Amazin's" game. From top-of-the-line amenities to an exciting young team, Citi Field has it all.

The ballpark features seating that is positioned right over the field, so there is not a bad ticket in the house. And there are tons of activities around the stadium to stay entertained for the whole weekend. Make sure to check out the World's Fair Ground situated just beyond Citi Field, along with a nine-hole golf course and science museum.
