Prior to the Mets game versus the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night May 12, Mets ace Johan Santana was presented with the Mets Sharp Pitcher of the Month Award. Santana was also noted for going 16-7 and leading the National League with a 2.53 ERA while recording 206 strikeouts in 234.1 innings in 2008.
Santana was joined at the Citi Field pitcher’s mound by Elmhurst Hospital Center Blood Donor Program Associate Director Sheila McGann Bivona, Elmhurst Hospital Center Child Life Program Coordinator Meredith R. Farrell and Starlight Children’s Foundation Great Escapes Coordinator Lauren Berninger. In honor of Santana’s accomplishment, Sharp will present a check to the Starlight Children’s Foundation that will benefit Elmhurst Hospital Center. The Starlight Children’s Foundation helps seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.
