Loyal ‘Til The Last Out 2014

September28th

Available Monday August 25th at 7pm!

Don’t miss it! Our final outing of the season is always a blow out. Come cheer on the squad with hundreds of like minded die hards one last time before April. Set an alarm and be on our site at 7pm. This event WILL sell out.

Before the game we’ll be hosting a tailgate party to get things started. This will be open to everyone. We plan to get there around 10am, and will head in around 12:30pm to be to our seats by the National Anthem. We’ll have some drinks & food, but it’s highly encouraged that you come prepared with your own as well. We won’t have enough to feed 800+ hungry mouths. A few things that fans tend to forget…  Ice, garbage bags and plastic cups. You know what you like to eat and drink, bring that.

Our parties consist of a family friendly atmosphere. Bring your kids, bring your wife. This is normally just an extra large gathering of Mets fans who mingle and meet up before the game. Come solo or bring your whole group. When you’re with The 7 Line Army you’re never alone.

The MTA lot is directly across from Citi Field’s rotunda entrance on the opposite side of Roosevelt Avenue.

POST GAME OPTION EXCLUSIVELY FOR OUR GROUP: $20 2 hour open bar after the game. This can be pre-paid online or paid for at the door after the game. Your decision.

THROW OUT THE FIRST PITCH!

update: GAME TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT! Meet up in McFadden’s after the game for the fundraiser!

EXCITING NEWS! On August 31st one of YOU will throw out the first pitch as a representative of The 7 Line Army! We’re very happy to announce this addition to our already amazin’ day.

The Mets offered to let me take the honors, but there is no I in ARMY and without all of you none of this would exist. I’m going to sit this one out and one of you will take my place.

By joining us on August 31st you’ll automatically get the chance. Once all of our game tickets and event t-shirts have been mailed, every seat number (family and employees of The 7 Line excluded) will go in to a hat and we’ll draw the lucky pitcher. The winner will have the option to bring up to 3 guests with them down to the field level for their time to shine.

Right now we have roughly 400 tickets sold with a maximum of 860 available…. these are GREAT odds.

We are donating $5 from each ticket sold to 7 year old Luke Lang who is battling leukemia. After the game we’re also hosting a fundraiser in McFadden’s with tons of really great prizes. Hope you can make it out.

PARTY ON!

PartyInTheOutfield_group

 
Whoa, what a night. Another successful outing with The 7 Line Army! Our shirts said “PARTY IN THE OUTFIELD” and we certainly lived up to that statement. As usual, from the start of the game to the very last out… and beyond… we brought the noise. It was a pitchers duel until the 7th, then the towels started to wave. In the end deGrom dominated again and chalked up another W for the good guys.

Sitting with The 7 Line Army isn’t just about the game, it’s an experience. You all collectively make this “thing” what it is. When we finally make the playoffs again, heads are going to explode. SO MUCH FUN! LGM! LGM! LGM!

Special thanks to @GordonDonovan for the group photo. Check out his work, gordondonovan.com . Always great stuff!

 

SIT WITH US ON AUGUST 31ST! Full details HERE.

CLOSED!

The entry process for our 2015 calendar is now over!

We had over 90 amazin’ ladies submit this year. Our panel will now have the tough task of narrowing down the field to a group of top finalists over the next week. Once that is set the voting will be up for 2 weeks for the fans to decide. The top 12 vote getters will make our 2015 edition! Finalists should be posted by next Friday.

It’s not easy putting yourself out there and we truly appreciate you sharing your passion for the team with us.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!

HIT TOWELS invade Citi Field!

Our Hit Towels came in yesterday and our online inventory sold out in just a handful of hours! We were unsure of how many to make at first but it’s clear that you guys are in to it. For whatever reason, it’s fun. There are still some left at our Citi Field stand, but they’re moving fast. If you want one of this first batch, get to the game tonight! The next stack won’t be ready by the end of this home stand.

We dropped off a bunch before the game to the players and they made their way to the dugout. I was reluctant at first since we didn’t want to mess with the mojo. They’ve been using Gatorade towels and last night the majority of them still did. Some made their way to the “car wash” which was definitely cool. If the players use them, that’s great. If they’re supersticious and don’t want to, that’s totally fine too. This is about the fans connecting with the team from the stands. Nothing more than a little towel waving to celebrate a hit and hopefully win!

MORE ARE ON THEIR WAY. SIT TIGHT!

Wave more towels.

HitTowel

Love it or think it’s silly, this is a thing. The Mets wave towels after hits and even form their own “car wash” in the dugout after home runs. Curtis Granderson brought the idea to the team; it’s caught on with the players and spread to the stands. After some players get on base they look to the dugout and wave their hand. It’s cool. That’s what the game is about right? FUN. We’ve been bringing our own grimy dish towels to games lately to get in on the fun. Now we have something official! Many fans asked if we’d start producing something for them… so here they are.

Plenty of teams have “rally towels” that they wave before, during or after games. That’s not what this is. This is a HIT TOWEL as blatantly plastered along the front. We’ll have these available soon and we encourage you to get in on the action. Not quite sure why, but something about waving a white towel is fun; which in this instance means the complete opposite of surrendering. Some say they’re even subliminally sticking it to the opposing team. The Mets aren’t backing down.

The size is 15″ x 18″ which is perfect for fans to bring to games. You can toss it in a bag or fold it in half and hang out of your back pocket, just waiting for the right time. Price will be $7 on our website and go up for sale this coming Monday at noon! They’ll also be available at Citi Field ($7.99) starting Monday night (9/27)!

PLENTY OF BASEBALL TO BE PLAYED. GET IN TO IT AND LET’S GET BEHIND OUR DUDES IN THE SECOND HALF. LET’S WAVE MORE TOWELS!

E-Mail: Thanks for Saturday

ThanksForSaturday

 

Always great hearing positive feedback after an outing. Here’s an e-mail from Benjamin who’s faith is being restored… We’re so happy you had a great time. You hit the nail on the head, the outings are supposed to remind us all why we’re fans. The cheering, the laughter and the fun times built around simply watching a ballgame.

Darren,
I am a 31 year old defeated Mets fan. I still watch 5 games a week, go on Mets Blog 10 times a day but I am broken.  For the past few years, I forgot what I loved about the Mets and why I was a fan.  I had no other reason besides being “loyal”.
I have been following what you have been doing with The 7 Line Army but until Saturday,  there has always been a scheduling conflict preventing me from attending a game. Saturday was the first time I have ever had real fun at Citi Field.  I want to thank you so much for making me believe again.  You reminded me why I loved going to Mets games at Shea.
I don’t know what your motivating reasons were to start The 7 Line, but your company has stuck a cord with me and thousands of other die hards.  Everything you are doing is great and so appreciated.  I just wanted to send you a sincere note of gratitude for pulling Saturday together.  We had so much fun!
Keep up the great work! LGM!
- Benjamin Sheena

Love 4 Luke

Luke_rotator

 

update: GAME TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT! Meet up in McFadden’s after the game for the fundraiser!

Prior to this season we heard about Luke and instantly wanted to find a way to help. We decided to turn one of our outings in to a fundraiser. Hope you can make it out to this amazin’ outing for a great cause. Luke and his family will be on hand for the game and afterwards we’ll be hosting a fundraiser in McFadden’s with tons of great raffle prizes up for grabs. $5 from each game package will go directly to the Lang’s along with every penny raised at the fundraiser. McFadden’s has also graciously agreed to donate a portion of their sales during the fundraiser as well. To learn more about Luke we asked his Mom Jeannine to write a few words.

“Luke Lang was diagnosed at the age of 5 on March 28, 2013 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Positive Philadelphia Chromosome (ph+ALL). He has undergone many rounds of adult dose chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, and numerous amounts of spinal taps (18) with chemotherapy injections. Luke has had many stays at the hospital he is being treated in (Winthrop University) for weeks at a time. Luke has three more years of treatment left. Luke missed three months of Kindergarten and half of first grade. While his friends were playing outside, Luke was either in the hospital or homebound without contact from people because his levels were so low he had no immune system.

What has helped Luke was all the love and support from family and friends. He also made a lot of new friends in the New York Mets. While in the hospital Luke watched the games and then watched the reruns the next day. When he was well enough we went to a game and he then became friends with Anthony Recker, John Buck, Justin Turner, Josh Satin, Matt Harvey, just to name a few. Justin Turner and John Buck still keep in contact with Luke. Lukes passion is baseball and the Mets. His room is Met themed. Luke is their biggest little fan. Luke is a true fighter and his motto is “LOSING IS NOT AN OPTION “. It’s the motto we live by everyday.

LOVE4LUKE. LOSING IS NOT AN OPTION!

- Jeannine Lang “
