Move over, Salt Potatoes! The Syracuse Mets have announced their alternative team name– the “Syracuse Butter Sculptures.”
The Great New York State Fair comes to NBT Stadium on July 13 when the Syracuse Butter Sculptures take the field at NBT Bank Stadium.
The first-of-its-kind event promotes the New York State Fair and benefits a local charity.
Players will wear specialty hats and jerseys for the day that will highlight the Fair’s must-see Butter Sculpture, which is provided each year by the American Dairy Association North East.
In addition, the first 1000 fans through the gates that night will receive a Scooch Butter Sculpture bobblehead.
The Syracuse Mets will hold their 6th annual Open House on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This will be the first chance for fans to purchase individual game tickets for the 2019 season. Fans will also be able to purchase season tickets.
Attendance and parking are free.
The 7:05 p.m. game pits the Mets’ top farm club against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the top affiliate of the New York Yankees, in CNY’s version of the Subway Series, the Interstate 81 Series.
