Sandy Koufax visited Terry Collins in the home manager's office at Citi Field, but Koufax is now employed by the visitors.

The Hall of Fame pitcher rejoined the Los Angeles Dodgers as a special advisor during the offseason after a prolonged estrangement from the organization. That reunion prompted Koufax this year to snap his streak of annual visits to Mets spring-training camp.

Koufax and Fred Wilpon were high school teammates at Lafayette High School in Brooklyn.

Another ex-Dodger, Ralph Branca, also is at Citi Field on Tuesday. The Dodgers are using the East Coast visit as an opportunity to film the greats for video-board use at Dodger Stadium later this season.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
