The New York Mets wanted to commemorate the bravery of New York City’s police and firefighters at the World Trade Center attacks a decade ago by wearing ball caps from the NYPD and the FDNY, instead of their standard issue ball caps with their uniforms. For one day. The bloodiest day on American soil since Appomattox. And Major League Baseball, mindful of the occasion, told the Mets players that they would be fined if the did so.

Keith Olberman isn’t impressed. (Baseball Nerd).
