The Mets continued the tradition of visiting a firehouse every year around the anniversary of 9/11 to honor and remember the brave men and women of the FDNY who sacrificed their lives to help others. This year, Steven Matz, Todd Frazier, Drew Gagnon and J.D. Davis visited at Engine 289 Ladder 138 in Corona, Queens. The firehouse lost four members on September 11.
The players toured the firehouse, tried on gear and viewed the firehouse's 9/11 memorial. The members of the firehouse received t-shirts and tickets to an upcoming game.
The Mets also hosted thousands of New York's first responders for a special September 11 pregame ceremony. FDNY, NYPD, PAPD, NYCEM and DSNY all were represented on the field to honor the memory of all those we lost in the attacks.
The Mets are dedicated to honoring our city's first responders who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The team paid tribute to the brave men and women we lost on September 11 during a pre-game ceremony and a special Tru32 visit to a local firehouse. The Mets also honored NYPD Detective Brian Simonsen and FDNY Firefighter Steven Pollard who were killed in the line of duty.
