NEW YORK (AP) -The Mets play NL East rival Philadelphia in their home opener April 8, and the regular-season finale at Shea Stadium will be Sept. 28 against Florida.
New York released its 2008 schedule Tuesday, which also includes the return of former Yankees manager Joe Torre to the Big Apple when his Los Angeles Dodgers open a four-game series against the Mets on May 29.
The Sept. 28 game against the Marlins would be the final game at Shea Stadium if the Mets don't make the playoffs. They plan to move into a new ballpark, Citi Field, in 2009. New York started playing at Shea when it opened in 1964.
The Mets begin the 2008 season April 1 at Florida.
