The Mets are asking their fans to step up to the plate and help out their community.
The MLB team and volunteer organization New York Cares announced the launch of their new “Mets Volunteer Challenge,” Tuesday.
The program, which ends on September 1, allows fans and concerned New Yorkers to receive game tickets and other Mets-themed rewards for participating and completing volunteer projects.
The rewards are broken down into three tiers:
Home Run– volunteers who complete three to five projects will receive four tickets to a Mets game in September.
Grand Slam– volunteers who complete between six to eight projects will again receive four tickets to a game in September, and will also see their name on the scoreboard in recognition of their service.
Perfect Game– completing at least nine projects will gain volunteers four tickets, scoreboard recognition during the game, and the opportunity to participate in a pre-game ceremony on the field.
Fans interested in volunteering can register for the “Mets Volunteer Challenge” by visiting Mets.com/Volunteer.
