NEW YORK METS AND GLAVINE'S INVOLVEMENT

During his tenure with the New York Mets, Tom Glavine was involved with Tuesday's Children. The Mets organization, in conjunction with TC invite kids to Shea Stadium on several days throughout the season for a pre-game picnic and the chance to rub elbows with the players. Glavine (as well as other current and former Mets players) contributed $5,000 to Career Paths, a program of Tuesday's Children. Career Paths offers families a working partnership with TC by assisting with college applications, the acceptance process, summer internships and post-graduate career guidance.
