Mets’ David Wright connects with sons of late NYPD officer
David Wright is the son of a policeman, and the tragic killing of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn last week hit close to home. Wright got in touch with both sons of Officer Rafael Ramos to offer support and invite them to hang out with the Mets next year. Via the Daily News:
The Mets star’s compassion extended beyond the 15-minute call – he also offered Ramos’ sons an opportunity to suit up with the Mets during spring training next spring.
The boys will even get the chance to join Wright and the other Mets players in the dugout for Grapefruit League games in Florida.
Ramos’ sons, both of whom are still in school, will have their educations paid for by a foundation started by late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
