Times Square Ink and Dads United for Parenting Hit a Home Run: Alumni Working this Season for Yankees and Mets!

Times Square Ink/Dads United for Parenting participants Luis and Robert were able to secure sought-after slots in the ballparks of New York's teams. These alumni were selected from thousands of applicants in a well-publicized and highly competitive hiring process.

Luis, a long-time Yankee fan and Yankee Stadium neighborhoood resident, will be putting his years of food service experience to work in the stadium's main kitchen. As anyone who has been there can tell you, the cuisine at the new stadium goes far beyond hot dogs and Cracker Jacks. Luis will have a hand in the preparation of everything from sushi to cheesesteaks. Make your way up to the Bronx as the Yankees pursue their 28th World Series title. If you see a someone smiling wider and working harder than the rest, it's probably Luis!

Robert will be working behind the scenes at Citi Field as a Porter. As you might expect, it takes the heavy lifting of hundreds of stadium staffers to ensure that fans have a relaxing day at the ballpark. Robert's efforts to excell at Times Square Ink and in the Dads United for Parenting program have prepared him for the hard work that he'll be putting in over the course of the Met's 81-game home schedule.

Let's all hope for a Subway Series powered by Luis and Robert!
