Mets Surprise Fans On Opening Day With New Parking Meters

While much has been made about the changes to the dimensions of Citi Field, fans arriving at Citi Field this morning were more interested in talking about a change in the parking lot.  After paying the $20 to enter the parking lot, fans were greeted by parking meters at each individual space. The meters, which cost 25 cents for each 15 minutes, are part of a slew of additional revenue generating efforts by the Mets.

A spokesman for the Mets explained the move.

"It's going to be a long hard road to financial recovery.  Along the way we are going to have to make some unpopular choices like parking meters and 52 different types of convenience fees when buying tickets online.  The Mets stand behind this decision and hope the fans embrace it as a chance to participate in the team's recovery."

The punishment for fans who don't feed their meters is a $75 fine and two tickets to a future Mets game.
