Area children learn the tools of the game from their big league heroes

Before squaring off with the division rival Washington Nationals on Thursday, a couple of New York Mets players helped make a day at summer camp at the Cross Island YMCA in Bellerose unforgettable for 31 area children.

The annual YMCA Jr. Mets clinic began with sprints in the infield before Amazins’ relief pitcher Josh Edgin took a group of eager ballplayers into the outfield to practice throwing while first baseman/outfielder Eric Campbell taught another group how to hit like a big leaguer at home plate.

Mr. Met even made an appearance at the clinic, handing out gift bags and helping conduct ground ball drills.
