2015 Fantasy Camp recap
The 2015 Mets Fantasy Camp presented by The Hospital for Special Surgery was an exciting, sold out event and the participants had the time of their lives at the team's spring training headquarters in Port St. Lucie.
This year's camp proved to be one of the most competitive and compelling. The campers played hard and the championship team led by former Met Anthony Young led the FAB-3 to a victory over the Three Little Pigs in a game played under the lights at Tradition Field. Both teams played well but ultimately the FAB-3 prevailed. They will receive their Championship Rings on the field at Citi Field prior to the Mets game on August 2.
The amazin' coaching staff included former Met greats Dwight Gooden, Tim Teufel, Lance Johnson, Doug Flynn, Ron Swoboda, Todd Pratt and Mackey Sasser, just to name a few! There is a special bond that forms between the coaches and the campers. New friendships are forged and memories are made.
This experience is truly a dream come true for these die-hard Mets fans.
We hope that everyone who came to the 2015 Mets Fantasy Camp had a great experience and we look forward to seeing you all at camp next year! Information on the 2016 Mets Fantasy Camp will be coming soon.

"We played in the Championship game under the lights at Tradition Field. Our team gathered in the dugout excited as our names were being called by the PA announcer. We all ran out to the 3rd base line high fiving one another. Then all of us were standing for the National Anthem. It was like we were playing in the first game of the World Series.
