I recently received the following communication from Scott Weiss over at Dan Klores Communications:

With another Subway Series fast approaching I wanted to let you know about this awesome three day event that Delta Airlines is putting together to celebrate this iconic series. Delta, the Official Airline of the New York Mets and New York Yankees, is inviting area baseball fans to play ball at an interactive experience celebrating the city’s two beloved teams.
