The Mets hosted their annual holiday party for youngsters on Tuesday at Citi Field with lunch, entertainment and gifts. About 100 children from PS 20 and PS 21, both in Flushing, and Pioneer Academy in Corona performed songs and then got presents from Santa Claus, also known as second baseman Daniel Murphy, and his elf, pitcher Zack Wheeler.
