MIAMI -- When a new ballpark opens in New York City, legends are bound to come.

And so Tom Seaver and Mike Piazza, two of the most beloved Mets in history, will return to Queens on Monday to take part in Citi Field's inaugural ceremonial first pitch. Seaver will throw the ball and Piazza will catch it, forming a battery of two of the team's all-time greats.

"The only thing, from a personal standpoint," Seaver said, "is I hope I can throw the ball 60 feet without bouncing it."

If there's any Terrific left in Tom's right arm, chances are he can.

Perhaps more than the pitch, however, Seaver is looking forward to exploring a ballpark that he previously only saw as a shell. Now settled in California, Seaver hasn't been to Willits Point since he helped close down Shea Stadium in a postgame ceremony last September. He's curious to see what's changed.

"It's great that the Mets have been able to get up to speed," Seaver said Saturday on a conference call with reporters. "Not a big municipal stadium, but a ballpark."

Also prior to Monday's home opener, the cast of the Broadway revival of West Side Story will perform the national anthem, with more than 200 veterans on the field representing all five branches of the United States Armed Services. After the troops present a football field-sized American flag, the anthem will conclude with a flyover by four U.S. Marine F18 Hornets.

In addition, the Empire State Building in Manhattan will shine blue and orange lights from its tower to commemorate the opening of Citi Field.

Of most interest to Mets fans, however, will be the union of Seaver and Piazza, arguably the best pitcher and catcher ever to wear a Mets uniform. Seaver is the club's all-time leader in wins, ERA, strikeouts and innings pitched, leading the Mets to the World Series in 1969. Piazza leads the Mets in all-time slugging percentage, ranks second in home runs and RBIs.

Seaver threw the final pitch in Shea Stadium's history to Piazza, during a postgame ceremony last September. Now, he will throw the first one at Citi Field.

"I'm probably more excited about this than the last pitch at Shea Stadium, because of the excitement of the new stadium," Seaver said. "It's a new era."

NEW YORK -- Mets manager Jerry Manuel made it official Monday afternoon: Gary Sheffield will get his first outfield start on Wednesday against the San Diego Padres.

Where Sheffield, formerly a designated hitter for Detroit, will play will depend on who's in the lineup with him. "If [Ryan] Church and Sheff play in the same outfield, Church will play right field," Manuel said prior to the Mets' inaugural game at Citi Field.

Sheffield and rookie left fielder Daniel Murphy spent about an hour before formal batting practice taking fly balls in the outfield, Sheffield specifically in right. Sheffield's take on playing the field, specifically Citi Field -- already noted for a footprint filled with nooks and crannies: "It's a difficult outfield, pretty big. I've just got to get out there and work the angles every day."

Noting that Sheffield has been practicing to play the outfield since his acquisition just prior to the season, Manuel said, "In this game of baseball, you can practice, practice and practice, but at some point, you have to get on the field and play."

Manuel likened Sheffield's reintroduction to the field to spring training prep time and said the Mets would likely play him, then give him a day off, then get him back on the field. But make no mistake, the manager said, what the Mets are waiting for is the bat, not the glove.

"It's very important that he get three, four plate appearances in before we can expect anything from his offensively," Manuel said.

Sheffield reiterated that he was more than ready to retire after the Tigers released him near the end of spring training and would not have been swayed by the thought of ending his career with 499 home runs.

"You know me, I've never been a stats guy. I would have had no problem leaving the game to these guys," he said, waving towards a clubhouse full of younger Mets players. "I'm not one to just want to hang around. If it's over, it's over."

Sheffield said that his uncle, former Mets ace Dwight Gooden, helped convince him that he could and should get some more swings in.

Murphy, the rookie, took fly balls and balls off the walls, as well, prior to batting practice.

"We played a couple exhibition games here, but it's important to keep working the field to see what to expect, to keep working on reads," he said. "I'm just trying to get a little more crisp out there."

As for the dimensions, Murphy, like Sheffield, agreed that Citi Field is pretty spacious. "The gaps are a little bigger," he said. "There's a little more room to cover."
