Step right up and greet the new Mets

Before facing the Reds at Citi Field on Friday, the Mets invited their 2012 first-round and supplemental Draft picks to take part in batting practice.

Gavin Cecchini and Kevin Plawecki received the full Major League treatment at the ballpark.

After signing a few autographs for fans, the duo posed for pictures, took their hacks in the cage and spoke with the media.

Cecchini wore a No. 2 BP jersey. Oddly enough, he told reporters that his favorite baseball player is the guy that wears that number for the Mets' crosstown rivals, Derek Jeter.
