The METS
April 23rd @ 8PM…ESPN Nationally Televised Game

Purchase tickets for the METS game and show your Salem spirit with a shirt.  This is a nationally televised game and EVERY ticket holder will be allowed to go onto the field for the National Anthem.

A special message…we wanted to let people know that we had to pre-order these tickets in November and at that time this was a 1PM game.  This particular game was later chosen by ESPN to be televised and was changed without our control. We understand that it is late and difficult for those with younger children but we hope that most can still come out and stay for a little to enjoy the experience.  Thanks again for your understanding.
