Mets Spend Day Off in Houston Helping Victims of Hurricane Harvey

This past Friday, the New York Mets spent their day off helping victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Originally the Mets were to play the first game of the series against the Houston Astros on Friday, but Houston elected to take that day and dedicate it to giving back to the community. Both teams agreed to instead start the series on Saturday with a doubleheader. While the Mets were in the area, they spent the day helping unload trucks at a church and meeting with the Houston Mayer, according to MLB.com. Astros Manager AJ Hunch was grateful to the Mets for not only making the adjustment to their schedule, but also for putting baseball aside for one day so they could work together and assist a community in need.
