Wright reaches out to sons of slain NYPD officer

David Wright picked up the phone and made a difference on Christmas Eve.

The Mets third baseman reached out to the two sons of slain NYPD officer Rafael Ramos on Wednesday, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

During a 15-minute call, Wright reportedly invited the boys, Jaden and Justin, to Spring Training and even offered them a spot in the dugout for Grapefruit League games.

The son of a retired Virginia police officer, Wright was asked by the Mets to send their condolences to the Ramos family. Officer Ramos and Officer Wenjian Liu were shot and killed Saturday in Brooklyn.

In addition to Wednesday's call, Wright also recommended New Yorkers to donate to a fund that will support the officers' families.
