Kate's husband, Pete, and their child were life-long New York Mets fans. As a family, they always rooted for their beloved baseball team through the good times and the bad times.
Nine months ago, Pete passed away. Somehow, word of his passing reached the Mets organization. Terry Collins, the manager of the Mets, took time out of his busy schedule and wrote this personal note to Kate and her family.
Here is the note that the Mets manager sent to Kate:
The message, offering condolences, is an incredible gesture. Collins, who also lost his father earlier this year, deserves tremendous respect for going above and beyond his managerial duties and for being such a class act here. This kind note epitomizes the positives of baseball and how it is really is a family game first.
