Diehard Mets fans pitched tents and unrolled sleeping bags last Saturday to take part in the second annual sleepover at Citi Field.
About 200 men, women and children enjoyed a meal, followed by watching the Mets play the Padres in an away game on the Jumbotron while on the field. The home team lost 6-0 to the Padres.
Then it was off to dreamland in a field of dreams.
