Syracuse Mets 2024 Opening Day Is Here Syracuse Mets 2024 Opening Day Is Here

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – It’s been 186 days since the Syracuse Mets last played a baseball game, but the wait is finally over. Syracuse begins its 2024 season with a three game home series against the Rochester Red Wings.

Mets play-by-play broadcaster Evan Stockton knows how important Syracuse baseball is to the community and says returning to the diamond is a sign that Winter is behind us.

“Having this team back playing games again means Summer is almost here and Spring is actually here,” Stockton said. “So many of us get through January and February and we start thinking of the warm nights at the ballpark with that cold beverage and a hot dog.”

Stockton also claims that the passionate families who bring their children to the ballpark are shaping the next generation of Syracuse and New York Mets fans.

“Having young boys and girls come to the ballpark with their parents, their aunt, their uncle, their moms and dads, their brothers and sisters and seeing all of this New York Mets stuff, that is literally breeding New York Mets fans for life.”

If you aren’t able to attend Friday’s game, don’t worry. Syracuse also plays on Saturday and Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in-person or online at starting at $21. Friday’s first pitch is scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
