Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will speak on behalf of working fathers at the White House on Monday, June 9, in advance of their Summit on Working Families.
The Mets are off that day, before starting a series at home against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Murphy will talk about going on paternity leave and missing the first two games of this season, a move that was criticized rather heavily on talk radio.
