GREENWICH - A group of senior citizens from Greenwich performed Wednesday night for about 40,000 fans at a Mets game.

The Melody Men sang the national anthem at Citi Field. The Melody Men is the outreach group of the Greenwich Retired Men's Association, a group that's been around for six decades.

This is the second time the group has performed at a Mets game.

The oldest member of the group is 96-year-old Chuck Standard, who was featured by News 12 last year when he went skydiving on his 95th birthday.
