As I posted yesterday morning, the LIRR announced extra service for riders attending the rescheduled Mets game tomorrow. However due to the remnants of Tropical Storm Hanna, today’s New York Mets game was postponed. The remnants also caused a suspension of play at The U.S. Open. The LIRR has just e-mailed me a press release with new information on the adjusted Shea Stadium service along with extensions of U.S. Open service for Monday:
The MTA Long Island Rail Road will adjust its schedules for Shea Stadium train service this Sunday, September 7 and Monday, September 8, due to the postponements of Saturday’s (September 6) Mets game and the U.S. Tennis Open matches because of Tropical Storm Hanna. The LIRR will provide its regular additional afternoon service to Shea Stadium Station for the re-scheduled Mets 2:15 PM game start on Sunday and extend its U.S. Tennis Open additional service to Shea Stadium Station through Monday, September 8. The previously announced additional service for the Sunday 8:05 PM Mets game at Shea Stadium will continue.

Customers traveling from branches other than Port Washington can reach Shea Stadium by taking a regularly scheduled train to Woodside Station, then changing to an eastbound Port Washington Branch train. Since Shea Stadium is located in Zone 1, tickets to that zone from outlying stations are valid to Shea. However, passengers must retain their ticket stubs and inform ticket collectors of their intention to travel to Shea Stadium. Customers must hold onto their tickets, which will be collected at the Shea station after they disembark. CityTicket is not valid to Shea Stadium Station.
