 NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets will honor late broadcaster Ralph Kiner by wearing a uniform patch all season and having an on-field ceremony on opening day.
The commemorative patch will be located on the right sleeve of the team's jerseys in spring training and the regular season.
Kiner, who joined the Mets' broadcast team in the club's inaugural season of 1962 after a 10-year Hall of Fame playing career, died on Feb. 6 at age 91.
On March 31, the Mets will celebrate Kiner's life during a pregame ceremony before their opening game against Washington at Citi Field. The ceremony will include a video tribute and the unveiling of the commemorative logo on the left field wall.
The Mets say Kiner's children, Michael, Scott, K.C., Tracee, and Kimberlee, will participate in the ceremony.
Kiner, one of the most beloved figures in franchise history, announced games on television and radio for 52 years and hosted a popular postgame show called ''Kiner's Korner.''
