B-Mets Help Disabled Children Play Baseball

The Binghamton Mets hosted their First Annual Disability Dream and Do Baseball Camp on Saturday.

More than a hundred disabled children attended the camp where they had the opportunity to work with players on different skills such as fielding, pitching and hitting.

Former major league player David Clark kicked off the event and  told the children to not let their disability discourage them from .
playing baseball:

"They're on a professional baseball field, the Binghamton Mets are going to be out here helping with the camp and they're gonna get to intermingle with the professional players. And you never know how it's going to touch an individual and make them believe they can achieve anything they want."

Participants of the camp will attend the B-Mets game Sunday night. One child will be selected to throw the first pitch and another will sing the National Anthem.
