Mets’ rookie sensation Pete Alonso has become an absolute superstar in New York this season, and his latest gesture will only further cement his status.
Alonso had custom cleats ordered for his entire team to commemorate the anniversary of the attacks in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001.
The players got to wear FDNY and NYPD hats too, but it was only before the game. And they weren’t the custom ones that Alonso and his teammates desired.
So they broke MLB’s ridiculous rules, putting cool, commemorative 9/11 cleats on their feet.
