Honorary Bat Girl to be recognized at Citi Field

Honorary Bat Girl to be recognized at Citi Field

PHILADELPHIA -- Sara Kouten will serve as the Mets' Honorary Bat Girl later this month, Major League Baseball announced Monday.

For Mother's Day on Sunday, half the league's Honorary Bat Girls will take part in pregame activities and an on-field pregame ceremony, and will receive pink MLB merchandise and two tickets to the game. Because the Mets will be in Miami on Mother's Day, they will designate another day in May to recognize Kouten at Citi Field.
