Mets on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball on May 26

ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball released the schedule for the first two months of the season, during which the Mets play the Braves in Citi Field on May 26.

Coincidentally, that is the same day the Mets had scheduled their afternoon, pre-game Banner Day.

To compare, the Mets were only slated for one game in April and May when ESPN released their initial 2011 Sunday Night Baseball schedule. Last year, the Mets were slated for none.

It’s worth noting that games after June 1 are typically announced just two to three weeks in advance of the broadcast, which is why they are not mentioned in the initial schedule release, so it is probable the Mets will be featured at other points throughout the season.
