Mets host annual Autism Awareness Day
NEW YORK -- The Mets hosted their 10th annual Autism Awareness Day on Sunday at Citi Field, teaming up with Autism Speaks for a pregame party including art therapy, video games, soccer instruction and other family activities.

To add to the comfort of their guests, the Mets turned down Citi Field's sound system in certain areas and reduced the use of strobe lights on the right-field scoreboard. They also roped off a secluded area of Citi Field's Bullpen Plaza, where fans could go if they needed a break from the crowd.

The Mets have teamed up with autism organizations over the years to help raise more than $1 million for the New York autism community. They worked this year with more than 20 different groups from the tri-state area on Autism Awareness Day.
