Callie Quinn, who will be taking prom pictures at Citi Field this season after successfully mounting a campaign to generate 500,000 retweets as part of a challenge by the team, joined Baseball Night in New York on SNY on Tuesday night to talk about her experience.
The Mets surprised Quinn with a Promposal from Mr. Met at her school on Staten Island late last month.
The above led Noah Syndergaard to wonder if Mrs. Met needs a date.
Quinn, also known on Twitter as @callieshayeex3, first messaged the Mets asking if she could take prom pictures at Citi Field. The team responded and told her she could -- but there was a catch: she needed 500,000 retweets.

The Mets also confirmed the plans in a tweet and congratulated the fan.
"I never thought that they would answer and I never thought that I would be where I am right now," Quinn said, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. "I just kind of went for it... ten seconds after they sent it, I was like, 'Challenge accepted.'"
Mets senior director of social media Will Carafello said the team "thought this was a cool scenario because people could get behind it."
"We've all been to a high school dance. So it was one of those things where it's like, you kind of have a little bit more of a general public appeal," he said, according to MLB.com. "She was the right person. This was the right scenario. It just had such a good mass appeal. You didn't have to be a Mets fan to get behind it."
The challenge even drew attention from players such as Michael Conforto and Syndergaard.
