David Wright is leaving for the WBC, but Jay Horwitz is ready to fill in for him
Mets VP of media relations and recent Twitter hero Jay Horwitz said Saturday that he planned to don David Wright's uniform to see if anyone could tell the difference:
Now that David Wright has left for WBC, thinking of dressing up in his uniform today. Will anyone know the difference? Lookabout the same.- Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) March 2, 2013
And later in the day, the Mets' Twitter account showed that he made good on his promise ... complete with Wright's signature outstretched tongue.
