Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Citi Field that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
Citi Field


  • The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates the history of the organization with interactive exhibits that include the team’s World Series trophies and rings, plaques for each of the members of the team’s Hall of Fame and much more.


  • Capacity: 41,800 fans
  • Mascot:
    Mr. and Mrs. Met
  • Opening game on April 13, 2009

Jackie Robinson Rotunda

This landmark partnership between Citi and the Mets has accelerated their significant commitments to the community with new resources to develop and launch outreach platforms and programs in and beyond New York City, involving both Citi and the Mets Foundation.

As the first step in this effort, the Mets and Citi commissioned a sculpture and named the entry rotunda of Citi Field – inspired by the classic design of Ebbets Field – in honor of Jackie Robinson, the legendary pioneer and great American who broke baseball’s color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. The partnership aims to recognize and perpetuate, in and around the rotunda and the community, Robinson’s legacy and the “nine values” he embodied as articulated by his daughter and Jackie Robinson Foundation Vice Chair, Sharon Robinson: courage, integrity, determination, persistence, citizenship, justice, commitment, teamwork, and excellence.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James

They had the best burgers and shakes at the “shake shack” worth the wait in line! We had heard from folks on the subway that the shake shack was not to be missed and they were right!! If you go to Citi Field get there early and go to the shake shack not just for shakes, the burgers are delicious! The big apple in center field is cool, and comes up on home runs! James

Christie’s Thoughts

Take the subway to the stadium – it’s worth it! Good food and a fun crowd! The field is nice and the seats were comfortable!Christie
