Tony from "Cruise Control" bats Home Run at Citi Field!

Two Long Island lovebirds hit a home run yesterday by becoming the first couple to celebrate their wedding at Citi Field.

Avid Mets fans Francesco Caputo and Jacqueline Scotti tied the knot by doing what they love best: heading to the ball park.

"We wanted something different, and it ended up being something really amazingly different because nobody has done it here before," Scotti, 32, told the News. "Frank is a huge insane Mets fan ... and I am now too."

The beaming bride blushed.

"I had to be a fan," she added. "Frank told me, 'If you want this ring on your finger, you have to be a Mets fan.' My loyalty is to my fiance. So, whatever team he supports, I support."

The newlyweds officially got hitched in the Church of Saint Aidan, in Williston Park, Long Island, earlier in the day before hopping in a white trolley which whisked them to Flushing, Queens. They were given their own Mets jerseys, a commemorative brick from the stadium and had their faces emblazoned on the scoreboard as they walked around the field.

About 270 guests were invited to a cocktail hour and reception inside Citi Field's swanky Acela Club, which has sweeping ceiling-to-floor glass windows and views over the lush green baseball field.

"The room is beautiful," said Scotti, who works in sales.

Caputo, 30, and Scotti met more than 10 years ago while working in a restaurant in Long Island and dated for five years.

They attended more than 10 games at the new stadium last season and to keep with the baseball-themed wedding, guests were served dessert out of Mets-branded cups and all the groomsmen were given bats.

Instead of doling out traditional favors to guests, the couple decided to pay for two kids with autism to go to Mid Hudson Valley Camp for one week each this summer.

"I love children and I just think that anyone who actually has a healthy child is the luckiest person in the world," Scotti said. "It breaks my heart, so we thought these kids deserve to be happy."

The newly married Mets fans hope their choice of venue will bring luck to their future lives together, but also to the team.

"I'm willing them on," Scotti said. "They're gonna' win this year."
