New York Mets Rookie Pete Alonso had custom cleats made for his entire team, in remembrance of September 11, 2001.

During Wednesday nights game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in New York the team showed off their custom made cleats ordered by Pete Alonso, Tampa native, as a tribute to the eighth anniversary of 9/11. This guy might be a Florida boy but he has a heart for NYC and the USA.

According to WTSP, Pete Alonso went to Plant High School and the University of Florida before debuting as a first baseman for the Mets earlier this season and even won the 2019 Major League Baseball Home Run Derby. Proud that he is from our very own Tampa Bay!
