WATCH: Mets have to apologize after the team put two living players in their memorial montage this weekend
VIA Yahoo: The New York Mets have been honoring the 50th anniversary of the 1969 World Series champion team over the week with a series of events.
On Thursday, they renamed the street in front of Citi Field "Seaver Way." At Saturday’s game, they honored more than a dozen members of the title-winning team. They even put together a touching montage for all the players who have died.
Unfortunately, two of the players mentioned in memoriam are still very much alive: former outfielder Jim Gosger, 76, and 70-year-old left-hander Jesse Hudson.
The awkwardness continued according to Yahoo on Social Media...
"The Mets quickly figured out their mistake — let’s hope none of their family members were caught by surprise at the game — and apologized to Gosger. No word yet on if they reached Hudson."
lmao... send a Mets fan this story! By the way it's Bobby Bonilla Day, today...
