After having a son, one thing I’ve noticed is how much the Mets have become kid friendly. One way that is especially true is the Kidcaster contest.
It’s incredibly cool that a kid gets to do play-by-play for a half inning. It’s something I wish was available when I was a kid. I hope it will continue to be available when my son is old enough.
The kid they chose this year, Dante Sasso, was terrific. He showed a knowledge of the game. He even dropped a Tommie Agee reference. That’s impressive. It was also impressive that Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez kept up their color duties and really helped this kid along.
The Mets should be proud of themselves today. They continue to make this team kid friendly, and apparently, they’re developing a smart fan base.
