Dave Howard, the Mets’ executive vice president for business operations, said the team had no plans to add more trash cans or extra workers to the 18-member crew to deal with the litter.

“It’s sort of good now that there is debris to be blown out there,” Howard said. “It shows people are spending some money and buying food and drink and enjoying themselves.”

Howard says there are hundreds of wastebaskets around the stadium. “But, typically, when people go to their seats, they just drop it on the floor, which is sort of a baseball tradition,” he added.

He said there were no adjustments the Mets could make in the stadium to cut off or redirect the strength of the breezes and noted that Philadelphia and Boston had similar problems recently.
