Happy Mother’s Day.
The Mets celebrated Mother’s Day in quite a unique manner today. Think Pink!
Bats were pink as were the arm bands of each player. The purpose of this was to pay tribute to Breast Cancer awareness and to raise funds for this worthy cause as well as to fund research to eradicate this devastating health condition. It was also to honor Moms everywhere.
When each player came up to bat, in addition to his name and stats on the scoreboard, the name of his mother appeared adjacent to his. A video tribute also was played where the player informed the crowd why he felt his mother was so special in helping him achieve the level of success he has had.
What a wonderful way to view the game with your family outside in the sunshine, help a worthy cause and honor Mothers simultaneously. Hope you had a good one. I sure did!
