North Shore-LIJ Army Vet Hurls First Pitch at Mets' Game

FLUSHING, NY -- Donald Grande, an emergency medical technician at the North Shore-LIJ Center for Emergency Medical Services, who returned to work last fall after a nearly year-long stint with the Army Reserves in Bahrain, threw out the first pitch at the April 2nd Mets' game, as pitcher Bartolo Colon looked on. About 10,000 North Shore-LIJ employees and family members attended the game, thanks to health system trustee and Mets' president Saul Katz, who donated the tickets.
