Al Leiter Signed 9/11 Memorial Jersey
When the Mets took the field again following the September 11 attacks in 2001, they sported 9-11-01 patches on their sleeves. Longtime pitcher Al Leiter provided steady leadership from the mound as baseball resumed, but did you know that he was also helping out with relief efforts off the field? In the days after September 11, Leiter could be found in the Shea Stadium parking lot unloading incoming 18-wheelers packed with donated items for first responders.
