Trivia Friday: Mets Players Who Wore The Cleats
Not too dissimilar from what Todd Zeile did in 2001, Pete Alonso took it upon himself to be a leader and get cleats to honor the first responders. He did it because he knew the hats would not be permitted, and based on past MLB behavior, they would be confiscated.
Just like Zeile, Alonso deserves all the credit in the world. The same can be said for the teammates who risked punishment from Major League Baseball for defying (directly or indirectly) them. Those players should be lauded as well. Do you remember their names?
