Citi Field is a major league baseball park outside of New York City in Queens New York, and the home of the New York Mets, since the 2009 MLB season. Citi Field is sponsored by Citi Bank. It broke ground in 2006 when the Mets home was still Shea stadium. The stadium was built as a replacement for Shea Stadium, which was where the parking lot is today. It was torn down after the 2008 baseball season. Citi Field is host to many festivals and music events throughout the year.
