The Mets are grateful to Lancaster Catholic graduate Travis Jankowski by putting on his training T-shirt before the game. Sports

New York Mets outfielder Travis Jankowski is a role player. But he’s fine with that. A Catholic graduate of Lancaster in his eighth season in the specialty from time to time begins. But the 31-year-old Jankowski mostly comes off the bench for defense or in order to use his speed as a runner on the base tracks.

A couple of weeks ago, Jankowski said in an interview “No one will buy my T-shirt,” as reported by Greg Joyce on He meant he knew his place. That he is not a superstar and is happy to just do his part to help the team win.

Comrades on Jankowski’s team, who had fun but also wanted to show their love for him and their gratitude for his contribution, all wore shirts with Jankowski’s name and number at the Mats’ pre-game training session before playing in Seattle on Saturday.

Jankowski, who has played in 23 games for the Mets this season, is gaining 0.290 (9 on 31) and has three stolen bases.
