up some decorations that will double as prizes! Order some
New York Mets posters and hang them up around the party space.
You can either create your own contest or simply have a raffle
to allow for your guests to win the posters on the wall as
the game goes on. If youve opted to play baseball Bingo
while you are watching the game, then these would make great
prizes for that as well! See below for online poster resources

just download them CLICK
on the number of guests you are expecting (and the time of
year) you might consider renting an actual dunk tank. On warm
days you shouldnt have any trouble getting volunteers
to take their turns on the hot seat.
youve recently been to a New York Mets game (or are
planning to go to one before you need to mail out your invitations),
use one of the programs to photocopy the front page. On the
backs of the copy, print out all of your party information!
New York Mets Penny Pitch. Set up a few Los Angeles Dodgers
baseball caps (face up such that they could catch a penny
if one was thrown its way) on the ground some distance away.
Around the New York Mets caps arrange OTHER teams caps
in a similar fashion. Each player is to throw five pennies
towards the arrangement of hats, hoping their pennies land
inside the New York Mets caps. They will receive 5 points
for each penny that does. For every penny that lands in ANOTHER
cap (some other team) TWO points are taken away from their
score. Once each player has had a chance to throw their five,
determine a winner by seeing who has the most points!

the team colors for the New York Mets are Mets Blue, orange
and white - be sure to decorate all you can in these colors.
A handy trick to blanket the space in the colors is to visit
your local fabric store and buy a few lengths of fabric in
those colors. You might even be able to find prints representing
the New York Mets (if you live in that city). Many things
can be done with the fabric such as draping it in swags along
windows, adding depth of color to table cloths, even cutting
your hands one wrapping paper in the team colors. These are
great for decorating, creating table place mats, centerpieces,
cutting into confetti and for making goodie bags.
