Despicable MLB: Mets Should Wear The First Responder Hats Tonight

An article by posted on September 11, 2011

According to ESPN, Major League Baseball has issued an “edict” to the Mets and across baseball not to wear hats in-game honoring first responders, such as the FDNY and NYPD, Terry Collins said.

The Mets issued the following statement: “MLB set a league-wide policy as it related to caps and uniforms for September 11 and we followed the guidelines.”

When MLB pulled the same crap in 2001, the players (Piazza, Zeile, Ventura, etc.) defied Bud Selig and wore the FDNY and NYPD hats, essentially telling MLB to shove it.

Flood MLB.com with complaints for their un-American, inconsiderate, and cowardly actions.

Today was supposed to be about remembering the fallen of the September 11 attacks, but MLB, led by Bud Selig, decided to make the day about themselves.

Despicable…

We’re All Behind You, Guys. Thank You For All Your Sacrifices…
