With the MLB All-Star break giving New York Mets fans a few days off from watching the Amazins’, WFUV’s Matt Moro and Kris Venezia decided to take a look at the highs, lows and the future of the ball club. The two also interviewed players and television play-by-play broadcaster Gary Cohen on Saturday.
After touring MLB's annual FanFest, this year at the Javits Center in Manhattan, MLB Director of Special Events Jacqueline Secaira-Cotto was kind enough to chat with Jake Kring-Schreifels, Bob Ahrens, and I about some of the great things the event has to offer.
