United States

The Third Annual Japanese Heritage Night takes place at Citi Field as the New York Mets, who are tied for first place in the National League East, host the Central Division-leading Cincinnati Reds.

Pregame entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. with the dynamic taiko drum troupe Taiko Masala and the Japanese Folk Dance Institute of New York. There will also be a special presentation of the Mets Community Spirit Awards to New York-based Japanese organizations that have contributed to relief efforts in Northeastern Japan.

A portion of each ticket sold through mets.com/japan will be sent to the US-Japan Council’s Tomodachi Fund, which supports Japan’s recovery from last year’s earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster through the strengthening of cultural and economic ties and people-to-people exchange between the US and Japan.

The Mets are providing three specially designated cheering sections:

  • Baseline Box Silver – $65/ticket
  • Pepsi Porch – $30/ticket
  • Promenade Reserved Infield – $20/ticket

To purchase individual tickets, go to mets.com/japan. For groups of 25 or more, contact Nicole Annese of the New York Mets Group Sales Department at 718.559.3020. Groups of 25 or more can also have their names displayed on the scoreboard.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the red-hot Mets while raising much-needed funds for Japan relief.
