Several Mets Show Up Months Early For Spring Training After Mistakenly Hearing Vanessa Hudgens Named Hitting Coach

Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie was unusually busy this weekend as several Mets showed up nearly three months early to work on their hitting.  So why the urgency?  As it turns out several Mets players were mistakenly told that Vanessa Hudgens was going to be named hitting coach of the Mets.

Apparently, the source of the confusion appears to be none other than Mets shortstop Jose Reyes.  According to sources, Reyes read online that someone named Hudgens was going to be named the new hitting coach of the Mets.  Having never heard of Hudgens, Reyes typed "Hudgens" into Google and was thrilled at the search results which came back.  These result included some very interesting pictures.

Not realizing he had confused Dave Hudgens with Vanessa Hudgens, Reyes started calling teammates and booked a private jet to Port St. Lucie to hopefully get some 1 on 1 instruction from his new coach.

David Wright, Josh Thole & Angel Pagan were among the group that joined Reyes on his jet.  According to reports, when the group arrived at a closed Digital Domain Park and realized their mistake, they decided to go to a local Hooters for wings instead.  Reyes reportedly picked up the bill.
