SNY PLAY BALL! Presented by Citi Awards the First Grant of 2012!
On Monday, March 19, SNY PLAY BALL! Presented by Citi held a ceremony for the first of this years grants to be awarded during the baseball season. Asbury Park Little League participants, family and friends, the Mayor of Asbury Park, and even Mr. Met were all on hand as SNY and Citi presented a $5,000 check to Daniel McKee, the president of the league.
The much needed funds will go directly towards improving the playing fields that the kids use, a project that has been a main focus for Mr. McKee since he took over in 2005. After brief talks given by representatives from SNY and Citibank, the kids lined up for autographs from Mr. Met and then took the field for the first practice of the year.
On April 20, league participants will be treated to a game at Citi Field and recognized on the field before the Mets take on the San Francisco Giants. Also, Asbury Park Little League will be featured on SNY during an episode of Kids Clubhouse in April.
