HO-HO-KUS, N.J. — Bailey Blood, 11, and Jakub Kosinski, 13, of Ho-Ho-Kus were invited onto the field at Citi Field to change out the bases between innings during the Mets game on Sunday.

Blood, who has cerebral palsy, received a fist-bump from Mets third baseman David Wright for his effort.

Blood and Kosinski were two of more than 250 Ho-Ho-Kus residents who came to Citi Field to watch the Mets take on the Milwaukee Brewers as part of "Ho-Ho-Kus Unplugged," a community group that organizes events to get families to spend time together away from technology.

"It was great to get a bunch of kids unplugging with some good old fashioned baseball," said Dana Koenig, who runs "Ho-Ho-Kus Unplugged."

The Mets won 3-1.
