These young Mets fans should hang out and form their own battery

A humble suggestion came to us while watching the Marlins-Mets matchup on Monday afternoon.

Can we get this young Mets fan, decked out in full catcher's gear including chest pad:

And this fan with a strikingly Jacob deGrom-esque head of hair:

To hang out and form their own mini-Mets battery?

Maybe the young aspiring catcher can pretend to be Travis d'Arnaud and the pair can recreate deGrom's seven-inning, 13-strikeout performance in Game 1 of the 2015 NLDS? Or, if they get a few more friends, they can reenact the entire Mets' NL pennant run. That sounds like a good project for summer vacation.
