Mets catcher Josh Thole hopes to come to an agreement soon with MLB on a policy that would allow his team to wear emergency service-department caps after the league denied their request on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
They should have worn the hats. Even more so – they should have been allowed to wear the hats. But baseball never gets it right. Time and again, it’s rather unfortunate that such a beautiful game has to be ruined by those who run it.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001 and honor the memory of the victims, the Mets will wear the hats of first responders and service agencies for their game against the Chicago Cubs on Sept. 11.
Jose Reyes became the Mets’ all-time leader in runs scored this past week, breaking a tie with Darryl Strawberry and the injured David Wright atop the club’s leaderboard in that category.
