New York MetsMarlon Byrd T-shirt giveaway.


NEW YORK -- The Mets traded Marlon Byrd on the day they were poised to give out his T-shirt as part of a Tuesday promotion to those who purchased the package.

But the Mets are making things right under the circumstances: They are offering the Byrd T-shirt, plus another shirt giveaway from earlier this season, plus two tickets to a September game.

A giveaway for a traded player is not unprecedented. The Philadelphia Phillies proceeded with a Hunter Pence bobblehead day after trading him to the San Francisco Giants.
