NEW YORK –The New York Mets honored first responders on 9/11. Rookie Pete Alonso ordered custom cleats for each of his teammates to honor the victims of the terror attack. Each shoe was unique with a special message. It was just his latest effort to assist those impacted by 9/11. He used to play for the Las Vegas 51s.
