The Mets win the Retailer of the Year Award

The Mets lost the World Series in five games, but at least they won something: Major League Baseball just announced that the Mets are the 2015 Major League Baseball “Club Retailer of the Year.” What makes a club the Club Retailer of the Year? According to the press release it’s “their commitment to driving merchandise sales through creative marketing and merchandising efforts.”

So that’s exciting. So too is this:

“The New York Mets took advantage of a fantastic season on the field and turned that into tremendous success in their stores throughout Citi Field,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business.  “Even before this year’s World Series berth, the retail staff in Queens provided Mets fans with a diverse and creative mix of product and promotions to support the team and the fans responded in a big way. The Mets earned this award with their hard work during one of the best seasons the franchise has ever experienced – on and off the field.”

Do they raise the banner for this at the home opener, or?
