Some people dream of doing live coverage of Major League Baseball games.

For Greenlawn’s Johnny Gadamowitz, that dream came true when he was 12 years old.

Now he’s on his way to do it again. In the spring of 2013, Gadamowitz, then 12, was with Met broadcasters Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling. Ron Darling were hailed as the winners of New York’s “Kidcaster” competition.

Johnny won the show with an essay about his favorite thing about watching a Mets game.

“I saw all the cameras, the producers, and that’s when I started getting hit,” Johnny told GLI. “I remember thinking it was a really big deal.”

Johnny said it was with his grandfather, John Klein of Belmore, a Mets fan since the Dodgers left Brooklyn.

“My grandpa was probably the biggest Mets fan in the world,” Johnny told Newsday at the time.

Fast-forward ten years, and Johnny has just graduated from Syracuse University and landed a job reporting live for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Met High School affiliate. “With a team right in my old backyard, and the Mets, I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my career.”
