Mets embrace ‘Bobby Bonilla Day’ with option for fans to sleep at Citi Field

The Mets and Bobby Bonilla embrace the annual viral “Bobby Bonilla Day” party by putting Bonilla back to work.

For one night anyway.

As part of a promotion between Airbnb and the Mets, fans will have the option to book an overnight stay at Citi Field for $ 250 which includes a two-game VIP suite for up to four people, the option to launch an opening pitch, equipment Mets, hot dogs and unlimited drinks and the possibility of spending the night at the stadium.

“As a born and raised New Yorker and longtime player in the city, there is a special place in my heart for Mets fans and it’s wonderful to see the faithful return to green seats in Queens. “Bonilla said in a press release. “This year I’m joining in the fun, trying on a new glove as an Airbnb host and hopefully giving a few people the night of their lives at Citi Field.”

The lucky fan will throw the first pitch in the July 28 game against Atlanta. The reservation opens July 8 at 12 p.m., according to the Airbnb list.


Winning fans will also have access to the Mets gym for a workout and shower before laying down to sleep in a suite.

Sleeping fans will wake up as 42,000 fans are admitted to the July 29 game against Atlanta at 12:10 pm. This game is included in the package.

The “Bobby Bonilla Day” evolves every year on July 1, when the Mets must pay Bonilla $ 1.9 million through 2035 under a deferred salary agreement of $ 5.9 million.
