Yankees and Mets to Play on September 11th
“Can’t imagine how emotional and how powerful of an event that could be’’ ~ New York Yankees Manager Aaron Boone
As Major League Baseball gets set to start their shortened season amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic, it was announced that the New York Yankees and the New York Mets will play on September 11th 2021.
According to the Asbury Park Press, the two New York teams will face each other on the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the United States.
According to report, the Yankees will face the Mets on September 11th 2021 at Citi Field in Queens...home of the New York Mets.
September 11th is such an emotional day here in the tri-state area and of course we here at the Jersey Shore will never forget the horrid attack and the lives that were forever changed on that horrific day. It only seems fitting that on the 20th anniversary next year that the New York Yankees play the New York Mets.
The event I'm sure would have emotional ceremonies that remember the fallen and their families. Teams might even wear the caps that honor first responders for the game, giving it a true "New York" feel.
New York Yankees Manager Aaron Boone added “It’s something that hopefully we’re all a part of"
