NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will throw out the first pitch at Citi Field on Opening Day.

De Blasio will take the mound when the Mets start their 2014 season on Monday.

He will be joined by six children from East Harlem who were affected by the explosion that leveled two buildings in that neighborhood.

The children are students at the East Harlem Tutorial Program.

The program runs charter schools and after-school programs.
