The results are in and the Mets have announced that Banner Day will be held on Saturday, May 11 prior to the 1:10 PM game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

If you already purchased tickets to the original May 26 date and want to re-schedule, you can contact the Mets at

Great job by the Mets for reacting quickly and letting the fans decide.

Original Post

Banner Day is currently scheduled for Sunday, May 26. However, after our promotion schedule was released ESPN selected that date for a Sunday Night game. Some of you are very passionate about having Banner Day on a day game. Others feel because Monday, May 27 is the Memorial Day Holiday, the original date still works.

We’d like to hear from more of our fans to help decide which date is best. Vote for when Banner Day should take place this season: the current date of Sunday, May 26 or one of two potential alternate dates: Saturday, May 11 or Saturday, June 8.

This wasn’t the Mets’ fault, and I applaud them for considering changing the date of the event and making fans a part of that decision.

Voting ends Friday, January 25, at 11:59 p.m.
