David Ullstrom shows off his Mets gear at Citi Field prior to the Mets vs. Phillies game on Friday, July 15, 2011.
The Islanders prospects hopped on the bus for their annual mini-camp trip to Citi Field to watch the New York Mets take on the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

 
Although only a handful of player at this week’s mini-camp are from the New York Area, there are a few notables who consider themselves big Mets fans. David Ullstrom, Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin were decked out in Mets shirts and hats for the game, urging on the home team.

Cizikas and Justin DiBenedetto did their best Howie Rose/Butch Goring impressions as they tried their hand at some play-by-play during the fifth inning.
 




Friday night’s Mets game was also camp invite Art Bidlevskii’s first baseball game. Hear what he thought of the experience, and see if his play-by-play skills were close to the team of Cizikas and DiBenedetto.



Although the Mets dropped the 7-2 decision to the Phillies, the players were able to use the opportunity to spend some time with each other one last time before facing off in Saturday night’s Blue and White Scrimmage.
