Twenty youngsters ages 9-14 years old participated in a series of fundamental drills on the Mets’ playing field with instructors from the organization.  Following the 2-hour clinic, the participants were treated to a photo opp with Mr. Met.  Nesta Felix, New Flex Founder, attended the event with the children and commented, “This is a great opportunity for our young people to not only receive instruction, but have access to a professional facility.  We are grateful to the NY Mets for welcoming our organization and providing a first rate instructional practice.”
