Yankees assistant hitting coach visits Brooklyn elementary school
It was Yankees and Mets Day at a Brooklyn elementary school on Monday.
Third and fifth grade students at P.S. 151 sat down with former third baseman and outfielder Hensley "Bam Bam" Meulens, who is now the hitting coach for the Yankees.
"I think education is important. I have five kids myself, two grandkids and we try to give them the tools to be good citizens, and that's what I was talking about earlier. To be a good citizen, you need your teachers, your parents and your grownups around you. I think it's a safe place to say that you give them an incentive for them to be go to students and have them to try their best," Meulens said.
The Yankees also gave the students 400 free tickets to Monday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles.
