The New York Mets, along with all 30 Major League Baseball teams, are leading the effort to raise funds to rename a baseball field in memory of Shannon Forde, who passed away last March after a long battle with breast Cancer.
The field is located in Forde’s hometown of Little Ferry, N.J. The proceeds from the auction will also be used to renovate the field by adding dugouts with protective fencing and benches, perimeter fencing, bleachers, a backstop, a scoreboard and field signs.
