Citi Field, the replacement stadium for New York’s iconic Shea Stadium, is an open-air ballpark that features a number of unique design elements for fans of the National Baseball League’s New York Mets who call the ball park home.

The new stadium includes wider seats and more legroom between rows, wider concourses for easier access, more restroom facilities and concession areas to reduce lines, more elevators to facilitate movement within the stadium, and an exterior facade that has been inspired by New York’s first stadium Ebbets Field (Brooklyn, 1913-57.)

Citi Field’s Jackie Robinson Rotunda features a sculpture of Jackie Robinson, a great American and legendary pioneer who broke baseball’s color barrier as the first African-American admitted to professional baseball when he was drafted to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. The rotunda showcases Robinson’s legacy and the “nine values” he embodied as articulated by his daughter and Jackie Robinson Foundation Vice Chair, Sharon Robinson: courage, integrity, determination, persistence, citizenship, justice, commitment, teamwork, and excellence.

Mets fans will love visiting Citi Field’s wonderful Hall of Fame & Museum. The museum is open on all game days and offers fans an opportunity to see World Series trophies from 1969 and 1986; as well as plaques for all of the Mets Hall of Fame like baseball greats Keith Hernandez, Dwight Gooden, Tim Seaver, and Mike Piazza; as well as some great memorabilia from the ball club. The one-hour tours depart from the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and include a visit to the clubhouse, field, and dugout; as well as visits to the productions area and scoreboard control room, and the press box. Guests will also have an opportunity to tour the Sterling and Empire Suite Levels.

The Mets Hall of Fame & Museum is located adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda on the first base side, and is a spectacular attraction for all generations of Mets fans. The 3,700 square foot space features artifacts from special Mets moments, interactive kiosks that allow fans to scroll through memory lane, and highlight videos celebrating the Mets biggest conquests.
