WOODBURY - A Greenlawn boy called the game of his life on the biggest stage.

Johnny Gadamowitz, 11, recently won a contest in which the grand prize was a night at Citi Field in the Mets' television broadcast booth.

All contestants were asked to write an essay about the team, with the winner being chosen to sit beside play-by-play man Gary Cohen and analysts Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling.
