I feel like Veterans Day doesn't get nearly enough attention. Is it because it's not in the summer, and odds are you're not BBQing or hitting a party today?
The Mets do a great job saluting a military member during each game.
I came across this awesome IG account that gives a Mets history lesson each day. Not sure who runs @MetsRewind, but it's pretty awesome.
Mets legend Tug "Ya Gotta Believe" McGraw was a Marine, as was Hall of Famer Tom Seaver. It's also common knowledge that our GM, Sandy Alderson, was a Marine as well. I couldn't track down an official list, but many Mets put our country’s uniforms before their orange-and-blue one.
Thank you to all veterans, not just today, but every day.
BACK AT IT! Kick off the 2023 home season with us at Citi Field on Thursday April 6th. The game is at 1:10pm so plan to be there bright and early. The Mets take on the Marlins, and as usual we'll be hanging out before in the Marina Lot.
