August 07, 2011  |  Posted in: Events   |  By:   |   0 Comments

New York MetsT-t-take me out to the ballgame with NSA.

UPDATE:        LUCKY US!!   The tickets for Aug 29th are now for a doubleheader (two games in a row for the non-baseball people).   Our event is for the game which is scheduled to begin at 7:10pm.  If the first game ends late it is affect the start time of the second game, the ticket is good for BOTH games!!!  So for you hard core Mets fans that can get out earlier, enjoy the first game which begins at 4:10pm.

The plan for most will be to arrive a bit earlier for the 7:10 game.  For those of you who requested tickets on or before Aug 21st, your tickets have been mailed.  For those of you who requested tickets on Aug 22nd or later, your tickets will be at the Will Call Window at Citifield before the game.  YOU MUST HAVE PHOTO IDENTIFICATION TO GET YOUR TICKETS AT THE WILL CALL WINDOW!!   If there are any problems with tickets I can TRY to help, so bring my number in case (718-990-6834 – let it ring for a while).  Looking forward to seeing you at the game!!


Last year’s baseball outing was a huge success! One hundred members, friends, and family came together to watch the Mets take on the Atlanta Braves. Spending time with people from our support group and meeting other people in the stuttering community from the area was priceless. With the final days of summer approaching, the Queens Chapter of the NSA once again invites the stuttering community to join us for a night of peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and Mets baseball.

On Monday, August 29th, 2011, the Queens Chapter will see the New York Mets take on the Florida Marlins at Citi Field in Flushing, NY at 7:10 PM. Tickets are complimentary, but a suggested donation of $15 per ticket would be greatly appreciated (these tickets are normally $20). Limit of 2 complimentary tickets per person. Requests for additional tickets will be considered, especially for families. For additional ticket requests, you can e-mail Mitch at trichonm@stjohns.edu.

Please make your tax-deductible donation checks to ‘NSA-QUEENS’, and put the requested amount of tickets in Memo area of the check. We have 100 tickets available. All 100 tickets last year were requested so make your requests NOW. Deadline is Aug 15th (but may be extended). TICKETS WILL BE LEFT AT THE WILL CALL WINDOW AT CITIFIELD.  THE PERSON LISTED ON THE ONLINE FORM NEEDS TO SHOW PICTURE IDENTIFICATION TO PICK UP THEIR TICKETS.  BRING MITCH’S NUMBER IN CASE IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WHILE AT THE WILL CALL WINDOW – 718-990-6834 (LET IT RING A WHILE!).

[UPDATE 9/1/2011]: We want to thank everyone who was able to make it to the Mets games and hope you all had a great time. The Mets won both games — I think being there together as a group had something to do with their victories.
