NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The Mets have invited the Stony Brook baseball team to Citi Field on Tuesday to be honored for its run to the College World Series.
The Seawolves will be on hand for batting practice and to meet some of the Mets players. A short ceremony will be held before the first pitch of the game against Baltimore.
Stony Brook is coming off its best season in history with a nation-leading 52 wins and a super-regional upset of LSU on the road. The Seawolves went two games and out in Omaha, getting outscored a combined 21-3 by UCLA and Florida State.
The Mets hosted Hofstra’s softball team Monday, which fell just one win shy of the Women’s College World Series.
“This is so nice for the Mets to do for us,” Pride pitcher Olivia Galati said, according to the New York Daily News.
