Tonight, the Yankees and Mets put the rivalry aside to just play the game and honor their great city.
Tonight is the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a monumental and emotional day for New York City.
It doesn’t matter that the New York Yankees are watching their season spiral out of control, while the New York Mets also need a run for the ages. No, tonight is about honoring New York 20 years after a horrific event, and letting baseball bring us together as it did in 2001.
At Citi Field, the Mets have already announced plans for a pregame ceremony featuring some familiar faces and will also wear first responder caps.
As for the standings, we’ll just link to them here. Tonight, the playoff race takes a back seat.
