NBC Sports– Major League Baseball denied the New York Mets’ request to wear baseball caps Sunday night honoring New York emergency service departments for their game against the Chicago Cubs on the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.
Joe Torre, MLB’s executive vice president for baseball operations, told The Associated Press in a phone interview the decision was made to keep policy consistent throughout baseball.
“Certainly it’s not a lack of respect,” Torre said. “We just felt all the major leagues are honoring the same way with the American flag on the uniform and the cap. This is a unanimity thing.”
Just read this on Boston and NYC Barstool and they both ripped Torre a new asshole. Welp, I disagree. Joe Torre is a classy fucking guy. God Damn right he shouldn’t let the Mets honor the NYPD and FDNY. Who the hell wants to be honored by the biggest joke organization that has ever existed? That’s a damn insult. And who the hell are the Mets to get special treatment wearing FDNY and NYPD hats when no one else can? That’s just not right.
Keep it classy, Joe!
