2009 (April 13) - After a very chilly start (34°, the coldest reading of the month) afternoon temperatures rose into the upper 50s, a few degrees below average. Unfortunately, the Mets lost the game to San Diego, the first game at Citifield. Rating: 5

The 2009 First game ever at Citi Field was the only Met Home opener played at night. Temps might have be adjusted down for that game. Thanks!


Thanks for pointing that out, Jeffrey! I've revised the entry to point out that the temperature fell back to the low 50s when the first pitch was thrown.

Thanks for changing it so quickly!

My 3 favorite things are Family, Mets and NY Weather!
My daughter bought me tickets for the 2020 opener its on March 26th which is very early. What would be the average temperatures in Queens on that date?

Thanks and Happy New Year!

With baseball starting in July we should have the warmest home opener ever this year.


Perhaps not, as Opening Day 1977 and 1991 had highs of 90 an 1998's was 86.

Good point Rob! Well we know it won't be the coldest opener this year!!
