Fiesta Latina Night at Citi Field

As if the prospect of seeing the Mets and Braves square off isn’t enough to enthrall you, it is also Fiesta Latina Night at The Field At Shea Bridge (a.k.a., “Citi Field”). As part of the celebration, the Mets will wear blue Los Mets jerseys and Telemundo 47 sportscaster Veronica Contreras will make public address announcements in Spanish.

Additionally, pregame entertainment will include Latin music and dance with a performance by Mariachi Bustamante.

However, Jose Reyes will NOT be performing his new rap song; instead he will lead off and play shortstop.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
