Getting Citi Field Started: Game-Used Ball
Date: April 13, 2009
The first regular season game at Citi Field was full of action, including a David Wright home run for the first Mets dinger in the ballpark. This ball was used in the inaugural game, as Mets battled the San Diego Padres but ultimately lost, 6-5.
