The Mets have been told in the past by Major League baseball that they could not wear any first responder hats during games on September 11.

This year, the Mets apparently were not appealing this decision. They may wear alternate caps during warmups but will switch to regular caps for the game.

Loge13 reader Paul posted this Sunday:

Dear Kingman,

Hearing the Mets would not be allowed by MLB to wear first responder caps during the game of 9-11, I sent an E-Mail to the Mets expressing my disgust and for them to defy MLB and any and all repercussions it may cause and WEAR THE CAPS in game.

I was answered with a voice mail from Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications, Mr. David Newman. He told me he would be in his office, tomorrow (Monday) afternoon to discuss my concerns. I'm telling you this so that if any other LOGE 13'ers feel the same way, they too can express their concerns. His number is 718-565-4305....Paul

So there you have it. Feel free to weigh in on the eve of the 11th anniversary of the attacks. Let me know what feedback you get. And thanks Paul for the update.
