This summer, the New York Mets are celebrating Marvel Super Hero Day at Citi Field by recruiting the House of Ideas' biggest Mets fan: Spider-Man.
In anticipation of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the Mets have announced that the team will hold an official Marvel Super Hero Day at Citi Field. The event will be held July 7 (only two days after the American release of Far From Home), and the team will celebrate by giving the first 25,000 fans in attendance a free Spider-Man bobble-head figurine. Part of the figurine will feature a Mets helmet, tying the two together even closer. Check out the official announcement below:

Across various media and incarnations, Spider-Man has always been a die-hard fan of the New York Mets. On top of the comic stories that center on how much Peter Parker loves the baseball team, he also visited Citi Field, formerly Shea Stadium, during a segment of The Electric Company and has pennants for the team on the walls of his bedroom in the trailer for Far From Home. That being said, an official tie-in between the character and the Mets makes perfect sense.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, directed by Jon Watts, stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is scheduled to premiere on July 5.
