Lenny Harris Signed 9/11 Memorial Jersey
Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, the Mets wore memorial jerseys such as this one signed by Lenny Harris. Shea Stadium had played a critical role in the relief efforts, serving as a staging area for donations to first responders and workers sifting through the rubble. Players like Harris showed up for practice at Shea Stadium during the day, then spent hours after work doing the grunt work necessary to keep the supplies moving along.
