Roger Cedeño was traded to the New York Mets in 2001 and was their starting leadoff hitter for the following two years.

These games are so very important to the players and all others involved with their lives .The players each have a buddy to help them with hitting the ball, running the bases or being in the outfield.

Dodgers Game Have you ever had your adrenaline pumping and you feel like you’ll burst? You might have this feeling if you go to a Dodgers game.
