Kilmeade, Doocy, Alisyn Camerota and Gretchen Carlson will be at the ballpark, holding a meet-and-greet before the game with fans in the picnic area.

Kilmeade says SNY anchor and former Mets pitcher Ron Darling has “committed to give me a quick pitching lesson,” but this morning on Fox & Friends, FOX News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace had different advice.
