Mets’ Pete Alonso wasn’t about to let MLB stop his 9/11 tribute

Alonso is not only having a great rookie season for the Mets.  He's special! 

NYPost reports his first thought was to get custom baseball caps with a 9/11 theme, but Major League Baseball blocked the idea with a mile of red tape, so Pete Alonso came up with another plan.

The Mets first baseman would buy each of his teammates custom-made cleats with different designs honoring the 9/11 first responders, and to heck with approval from MLB.

So, the Mets took the field Wednesday night at Citi Field wearing their 9/11 shoes to honor the victims, families and first responders. The result was a 9-0 Mets win over the Diamondbacks on 11 hits. And if you think the baseball gods weren’t applauding Alonso for his efforts, then maybe should look again at the final boxscore.
