David Wright Is The Man

David Wright Is The Man

Not much more can be said about the Captain that you haven't already heard. The dude is simply the best, and we've all been lucky to have him. I know he's left a lasting impression on our squad, and a precedent has clearly been set for all to follow.

As we did for Gary Carter's family after his passing, and Kevin Burkhardt when he left SNY, we made a giant DW card for fans to sign at The 7 Line Army's tailgate party. Hat tip to Dave Majo for the brilliant watercolor. That was inspired by a photo taken in 2014 of David waving up to us at Citizens Bank Park after a 14 inning marathon win in Philly. 

I didn't want the card to get banged up walking through the ballpark, so I hit up the Mets about delivering it. With no expectations of actually getting to hand it to David directly, it actually happened. Special thanks to Harold Kauffman (Mets Executive Director, Communications) for making the moment come to life. Shoutout to Marc Levine (Mets Head Photographer) for being on hand to capture the memory. 

 

David was blown away by the card, and was super appreciative fans took the time to sign it. He said once he can find the time, he'll read each and every note.  

Wright also heard about the Thank You David video we whipped up from the fans. He said, "I want to film something to thank them back." I'm thinking to myself - yea, that'd be cool, maybe in the offseason or something. He then says "Ok, lets move over so the Mets logo is in the back." Oh, you mean NOW. So there I am filming David Wright delivering a message specifically to The 7 Line Army. Unbelievable pinch me moment. 

P.S. I had asked David to be on Orange and Blue Thing last offseason, but the timing just wasn't right. He brought it up and says he's down for 2019. Should be a good one.
