'Utley U Butt-ley' sign makes 8-year-old Mets fan famous

A little girl made national headlines for a sign that she created to support the Mets in the NLDS Game 3: "UTLEY U BUTT-LEY."

For a second straight night, Mets fans packed Citi Field to cheer on their team in game four of the National League Division Series. And that includes one little girl who made national headlines for a sign that she created to support the Mets in game 3: it read "UTLEY U BUTT-LEY."

Her name is Sara Roditi. At age 8 she is already a huge Mets fan. She and her family decided to create a sign for the game to show their disdain for Chase Utley of the Dodgers, whose dirty slide broke Reuben Tejada's leg. But the slogan was all her idea.

She soon became a hero to fans in the stands who videoed and photographed her and her sign and shared the images on social media.

Sara happens to be the niece of Randy Roditi, a director at Fox 5 who had no idea she would become so famous.
