The other day we noted that the Mets risked not selling out Opening Day, which would have been the first time they failed to do so in 15 years. But it looks like cavalry has come riding to the rescue:
#Mets say they are down to standing room tickets and will get to a sellout today for 2012 season opener.

It was mostly the cheap seats that weren’t selling previously. I presume that a lot of single-game and budget buyers assumed that the game would be sold out and that the coverage in the Post and elsewhere made people realize “hey, I can still go to Opening Day.”
