The Little Leaguers had to forfeit a playoff game on Monday because of a mandatory concert and intercultural festival at their elementary school. "
"To be honest with you these kids have been in a funk for the last week since everything happened," said parent Beth Fliegel. "This may have been the first time that I have seen my son smile since they called his game."
"The problem that we had," said coach Victor Rodriguez, "was that the league forgot that the game is supposed to be for the kids. It's great to see that isn't lost on everyone and we are thrilled that the Mets did right by our kids and helped the kids move on from a bad situation."
