"Show Your Stripes is all about keeping sports fun and giving kids the confidence to be themselves when playing their game." "Show Your Stripes" Field DayAt the June 11 event, Little League teams from the New York and Pennsylvania area arrived at Citi Field expecting a behind-the-scenes tour of the ballpark. After exploring the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and Mets Hall of Fame and Museum, the young athletes (ages nine to 12) were escorted through a tunnel behind home plate and onto the field. They were then surprised by the appearance of Cruz, Murphy and Niese, who led the Little Leaguers® through three "Show Your Stripes" stations. Murphy and Niese addressed the players about the importance of team spirit – sharing Mets team celebrations, handshakes, rally caps and more. Little Leaguers had the opportunity to share their own team traditions and teach the pros their rituals.
