Little Leaguers Take Visit To Shea Stadium
On Sunday, September 10, children from the Rockaway Little League, Roxbury Little League and the St. Thomas More Baseball team went to Shea Stadium, where they were treated to a day at the ballpark. Shawn Green of the New York Mets took the time to personally greet and autograph each child's baseball and take a photo. Mets coaches Guy Conti and Rick Down made appearance as well as pitcher Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez stopped in to say hi. Each child received a baseball, two tickets to the game and a memory of a lifetime. The event was coordinated though Brian McNamee and the New York Mets. As the children passed by the weight room and the media room, the excitement on the kids' faces and their experiences will never be forgotten.
