With Monday’s game snowed out in Queens, New York Mets reliever A.J. Ramos and friends built Salty the Snow Met at Citi Field.
It’s a tradition as old as time itself. The kids are going to play when it’s an official snow day. It’s no different in professional sports as fans of the New York Mets are now fully aware.
As you’ve already seen from the tweet above, Mets reliever A.J. Ramos and friends decided to make great use of Monday’s snow day by building Salty the Snow Met at Citi Field.
The Mets game against the Philadelphia Phillies was postponed early in the day due to the recent snowfall in the greater metropolitan area. (The snow also destroyed the New York Yankees home opener up in the Bronx.)

As far as the snowman is concerned, the execution is solid. Mouth, eyes and a nose, even a Mets hat. But the name is just terrible.
Salty the Snow Met? What does that even mean?
Salt will melt the damn snowman. Salt is used as a tactic against snow. We understand the salt grinder is the new Mets fab, with Todd Frazier and company revealing it early in the season, but it may not translate too well when snow is involved.
Hey, maybe the Mets salt is magic. Thus far, it’s tough not to like what’s been seen from this club.
In any event, the 2-1 New York Mets will see the snowman destroyed by the good people of Citi Field prior to Tuesday night’s game against the 1-2 Philadelphia Phillies. First pitch comes your way at 7:10 p.m. ET.
