Times Square vendors honored at Citi Field

NEW YORK (AP) — Duane Jackson and Lance Orton Jr., the street vendors whose tip led police to discover a car bomb in Times Square last weekend, have been given a standing ovation at Citi Field before the New York Mets played San Francisco.

Frank Formato and Paul Casquarelli, two of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers who helped arrest suspect Faisal Shahzad, stood alongside the vendors behind home plate before the first pitch Friday and were applauded by the half-full crowd. The vendors posed with manager Jerry Manuel.
