Yesterday was the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As you can see above, the Mets marked the occasion by wearing first responder caps. In addition to the FDNY cap, players also wore these designs:
Also, Mets first baseman Pete Alonso wore first responder-themed shoes:
And shortstop Francisco Lindor wore a first responder-themed glove:
The Yankees were rained out last night in Boston. It’s not clear to me if they were also planning to wear first responder caps.
Most of the other teams playing last night wore 9/11 cap patches:
The Blue Jays, however, wore crossed American and Canadian flags, symbolizing solidarity between the two countries:
While we’re at it, Bills coach Sean McDermott and some members of his staff wore first responder caps for last night’s NFL game against the Jets:
Jets coach Robert Saleh did not wear a cap, which is standard for him.
In case you missed it yesterday, I had some thoughts about 9/11, which you can see here.
