Walked into the park around 2:45 p.m. and there on the field was Francisco Cervelli working on his release with Tony Pena.
Pena was standing about 10 feet away and Cisco was throwing balls to second base as Tony critiqued his technique. Cervelli does not lack for work ethic and for a young catcher, that is half the battle.
Tony also was working with his son, Mets prospect Francisco Pena. Tony’s son is 6-2, 230 and played in the Florida State League this season. He turns 20 next month.
