The Top Ten Reasons to Keep Going to Citi Field - NYTimes →

The Times asked online readers to act like “Late Show” writers and help us put together this list, and these were our favorites:

No. 10. For the remainder of the season, fans will be selected at random to play second base. (Rmyklo, Main Line, Penn.)
No. 9. Beautiful sunset view over Manhattan from the mezzanine deck. (Jack, New York)
No. 8. You’re safe from getting hit by a home run. (Dredpirateobts)
No. 7. To find a date. (If any person is able to handle all that disappointment and still keep showing up, you’ve found a person who will stick with you through the tough times.) (Guy Monahan, Brooklyn)
No. 6. The apple will now pop up whenever Jason Bay gets an extra-base hit. (Eric, Port Washington, N.Y.)
No. 5. They have started using real batting helmets for Carvel ice cream sundaes. (5w30, Brooklyn)
No. 4. Great parking for the U.S. Open. (Ted F, Westport, Conn.)
No. 3. Thanks to the New York State Senate, Mr. Met will finally be able to marry the San Diego Chicken in an on-field ceremony this September. (Eric, Port Washington, N.Y.)
No. 2. Because when you call up to order tickets and ask them what time the game starts, the clerk says, “What time can you be here?” (Ed, Westchester)
And, drum roll please, the No. 1 reason to keep going to Citi Field over the next two months:

Ollie Perez won’t be pitching! (Rmyklo, Main Line, Penn.)
