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.
