And by spirit, I mean the distilled kind…
Shortstop Ruben Tejada, although sidelined with a fractured leg, stood out behind-the-scenes with a truly rare gift for his teammates in honor of their incredible victory.
Each member of the team received a custom engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch whisky that read:
“NLCS CHAMPS 2015, KEEP WALKING”
It’s clear that chants for #WinForRuben didn’t go unnoticed by Tejada. This ultimate gift of gratitude shows his continued joy in the success of his team and love of the game.
Tejada said after the game:
“It’s been a long time since the Mets have gotten this far. It’s been a joy to watch my teammates sweep and I wanted to congratulate them with engraved bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.”
“We do have some work cut out for us, but today we’re going to enjoy this moment as a team since we worked so hard to get here.”
No word if Chase Utley offered to pay the tab for Ruben…
