Mets Make Coaching Changes

If you're like me and the past few days have been hectic, allow me to catch you up on all the happenings in Mets land.


Mets announced today the changes to the 2012 coaching staff. Hitting Coach Dave Hudgens and Pitching Coach Dan Warthen will both be back next season.

So who is not coming back? Well, everyone else. Bench Coach Ken Oberkfell, Third Base Coach Chip Hale, First Base Coach Mookie Wilson and Bullpen Coach Jon Debus will not be returning in 2012.

According to Adam Rubin, Hale has officially been named the Oakland A's bench coach. Wilson and Debus will most likely be given another role within the organization.

Tim Teufel will take over as the Third Base Coach, and Ricky Bones will become the newest Bullpen Coach.

Teufel served as the Buffalo Bisons manager last season, and Bones was the team's pitching coach.


On Tuesday, the Mets announced that it will be a little cheaper to go to Citi Field.

The team rescaled ticket pricing which will lead to cheaper tickets for season ticket holders in 2012.

Pricing for season ticket holders will change as follows:

·         80% of seats will have a reduction of approximately 5% or greater

·         57% of seats will have a reduction of 10% or greater

·         35% will have a cut of 20% or more

·         18% will have a drop of 30% or more

·         More than 15,000 seats will cost less than $25 per game

As for non-season ticket holders, you'll find out prices for single game tickets in March. Sit tight.
