All Wright

David Wright was at KeySpan Park today, working out with the Cyclones as he rehabs his way back to the Mets.

DWright looked great (especially sporting the Cyclones logo on his chest), blasted some home runs off of the scoreboard, took some ground balls at third base, ran, threw, and joked around with the Cyclones players and staff! He said he felt good, and was looking forward to getting back on the field with the Mets.

He will be back again to take batting practice on Wednesday, and in a special offer, fans can get to the game early to watch!

The KeySpan Park gates will open extra early tomorrow, at 3:00pm, with BP slated to start at 3:30. You MUST have a ticket to the August 26th game to be admitted to the ballpark. (Get yours here.)

Without getting all wishy-washy, I'll say that David Wright is perhaps the most gracious, polite, down-to-earth superstar athlete I've ever met. In a world full of negative stories about the players we look up to, Wright symbolizes all the things that are good about sports, and makes it really easy to root for him to do well.

So come to KeySpan Park and cheer him on tomorrow, then stay to watch the first-place Cyclones continue their push for the playoffs against the Vermont Lake Monsters!

Is he going to be playing for the Cyclones tonight??

no he will just be working out with the team before the game. Taking BP, fielding ground balls, and running.

It is SO COOL when someone you admire turns out to be one of the good guys in real life.
