The Mets score 9 runs on 11 hits, during an emotional win on 9/11 in New York as we remember those who perished on that tragic day back in 2001 - slugger Pete Alonso gifted his teammates w/ special cleats, that honored the fallen prior to first pitch. What an emotional night...
According to reporter Tim Healey, Pete Alonso orchestrated the Mets’ wearing of commemorative 9/11-themed cleats tonight. He planned it for weeks, ordered & paid for everybody’s shoes and enlisted other clubhouse leaders (including Jacob deGrom) to get everyone on board - as can be seen below
Alonso talked about the plan and cleats post-game
If that gesture doesn't make your heart warm, how about the pregame tribute
And as far as the actual game.... the Mets won after scoring 9 runs on 11 hits. Wow!
