Wright’s Jersey From First Citi Field Homer
David Wright wore this jersey as he made history at Citi Field, becoming both the first Met to record a hit and the first Met to record a home run at the ballpark. He notched a double in the 1st inning, then later sent a three-run shot over the fences. The Mets lost the inaugural game to the San Diego Padres, 6-5.
