Take the highest bidder out to the ballgame. The New York Mets are employing a unique method of selling remaining tickets for the first official game at Citi Field - by auction.

Tickets are being auctioned through 5 p.m. Wednesday for the April 13 game against the San Diego Padres. Fans can bid for two or four tickets for the 7:10 p.m. game. Multiple bids are not allowed.

Mets spokeswoman Danielle Parillo said Monday that 100 tickets were available in the online auction for the 42,000-seat ballpark.

Tickets have a list price of $525 (Delta Club Gold), $315 (Delta Club Silver), $280 (Ebbets Club) and $210 (Metropolitan Box), and 11 locations were listed.

As of 1 p.m. Tuesday, the minimum bids for each section were $610, $460, $350 and $310. The Mets are waiving delivery and Ticketmaster service charge fees.

The Mets also auctioned some seats for their final game at Shea Stadium last season.
