A longstanding tradition at Mets games is the Veteran of the Game, presented by FirstData. Typically, the Veteran of the Game is announced during the middle of the fourth inning, and is occasionally broadcasted on either SNY or PIX 11, if the time permits.
And while not everyone cares for it, I think it’s awesome that fans can recognize a veteran, and have them meet a Met and receive a commemorative flag.
If you’ve never seen it, SNY has a compilation of all of the veterans receive their gift. Obviously, I don’t expect anyone to watch all (or any) of these, but it is a very nice gesture that I rarely see outside of Queens in major league stadiums.
You can watch all of the clips here, on SNY.tv’s website.
