Whitinsville, MA, USA – May 5, 2009 – Mets fans will never miss a word when they see their favorite team play at the new Citi Field in Flushing, Queens, New York, thanks to an EAW sound system that’s as “amazin’? as the Mets themselves (to borrow the Mets’ first manager Casey Stengel’s colorful adjective for the team).
