New York Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. visited children at Stony Brook University Hospital's cancer center Thursday.



"This is my opportunity to put smiles on faces off the field. I enjoy coming here," Young told News 12.



Children at the center attend a Mets game each year. They will be at Citi Field on May 24 to root on the Amazin's.
