Citi Field may be quiet this time of year as Mets fans wait for another baseball season to start, but Queens’ professional team’s mascot isn’t in Port St. Lucie, Fla. waiting for spring training to begin.

Instead, Mr. Met took some time to play in the snow last Wednesday, the day after a snowstorm dropped a foot of the white stuff on the borough.

The fun-loving baseball-headed mascot took to the outfield and made snow angels where Lucas Duda and Curtis Granderson will be catching fly balls in just a few more months. Hopefully the angels will bring some luck to the blue and orange this year.

Spring training begins for the Mets in just over two weeks. They will return to Citi Field March 31 against the Washington Nationals.

Presumably, the snow angels will have melted away by then.

Welcome to the discussion.
