St. John's University held its second Employee Night at Citi Field on September 25 as the NY Mets took on the Miami Marlins, winning 10–3. More than 160 tickets were sold to employees, who brought their family and friends to enjoy perfect weather and a night of baseball and camaraderie.
The group witnessed history when first baseman Pete Alonso hit his 51st home run to bring him closer to the rookie home run title. Jacob deGrom also pitched his last game of the season that night, and because of his strikeouts and earned run average, he is now eligible for a second Cy Young Award.
Johnny Thunderbird was warmly welcomed by the crowd—he had a long line of greeters waiting to take a selfie! St. John's T-shirts, provided courtesy of University sponsor Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., were tossed in the stands to lucky St. John's employees. It was certainly a memorable evening for all who attended; the Office of Human Resources looks forward to hosting more employee events.
