A finance professional who recently served as a budget manager and bookkeeper for the Police Athletic League in New York, Owen Sinclair has experience in budgeting, comprehensive accounting, and project management. An avid baseball fan, Owen Sinclair follows the New York Mets.

Involved in numerous community outreach initiatives, the New York Mets and the team’s third baseman, David Wright, launched The Wright Thing in 2015. During its first season, The Wright Thing recognized volunteers who made notable contributions to communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.

For the 2016-2017 baseball season, The Wright Thing will celebrate local heroes of the NYPD with their program. Wright’s father served on the Norfolk police force for 30 years, and The Wright Thing honors his father as well as all those who serve in law enforcement.

Once selected, honorees are invited to Citi field to meet David Wright and install third base with the grounds crew prior to a Mets game. Afterwards, they can enjoy the game from third base line seats and watch their recorded encounter with David Wright as it airs on the stadium’s big screen during the game.

A resident of New York, Owen Sinclair possesses a background in bookkeeping, formerly serving as the bookkeeper of Sousa Mendes Foundation. Owen Sinclair, in his spare time, enjoys following sports. Among his favorite teams is the Minnesota Vikings.

Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell will join the Minnesota Vikings during the 2016-2017 season. He was selected in the first round by the franchise, which had the 23rd pick in the National Football League (NFL) Draft. The decision was prompted by Coach Mike Zimmer, who expressed in an interview with Fox Sports that the team was in need of a wide receiver who not only would be hard to defend because of his size, but also had a large catching radius. He is expected to be a good pairing with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Treadwell played for the University of Mississippi and holds the title of all-time leading receiver with 202 career catches. In his final college game, the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma State, he caught three touchdowns, an achievement that encouraged him to skip his senior year and go straight into the draft.

According to the Mets, Harvey has been working on his slider for months.

Known to many as baseball’s greatest power-hitting catcher, Piazza spent most of his 16-year baseball career playing for the Mets and the Dodgers.

Along with fellow inductee Ken Griffey, Jr., Piazza will receive induction into the Hall during a ceremony in Cooperstown, New York, on July 24, 2016.
