On September 11, 2011 — The Mets’ request to wear caps honoring police, firefighters, and other first responders for their September 11th game against Chicago is denied by Major League Baseball. The hats, which were worn during the pregame ceremony of remembrance, will be autographed and sold on Mets.com, with the proceeds to be given to charities through the Mets’ foundation.
