Meet the Mets

In honor of Jackie Robinson and his legacy, Curtis Granderson is donating 42,000 meals to help those affected by the current crisis.

Pete Alonso is also trying to do his part to help those suffering right now.

It is for those reasons and many others that former Met Todd Frazier can envision a day where Alonso is named as the next Mets captain.

Marcus Stroman joined Granderson, and several other major leagues, in remembering Jackie Robinson and what his legacy means to them.

Robinson Cano also shared how honored he is to share Robinson’s name.

Of course, the Jackie Robinson Rotunda is an integral part of Citi Field, but how did it all come together when the stadium was first being built?

Governor Cuomo spoke to Jeff Wilpon about starting baseball without fans, and Wilpon’s response was unsurprisingly about reducing players’ salaries.

In a stunning upset, David Wright is the best third baseman in Mets’ history.

On the latest episode of The Cookie Club, J.D. Davis shared his cookie eating technique which is certainly unique.

Around the National League East

The Marlins also took the opportunity to share what the great Jackie Robinson meant to them.

The NTSB released their report on the accident that killed Roy Halladay and they found he had drugs in his system while he attempted difficult maneuvers with his aircraft.

The Nationals joined a virtual meeting and all watched the World Series together.

Around Major League Baseball

Tim Anderson embraces the opportunity of being the new voice of the African American community in baseball and hopes to inspire the next generation.

While the institution of Major League Baseball claims it honors the legacy of Jackie Robinson, their actions speak differently and they need to do better.

While baseball can seem unimportant in the grand scheme of things right now, it is still ok to grieve for its absence.

Before sports can even think of returning, many variables will have to be in place to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Mike Trout is not a fan of the Arizona Plan since it would keep him away from his family for months.

Minor League Baseball is still preparing to have a season but until it returns the teams are finding ways to serve their communities who are struggling right now.

While all the news can seem overwhelming, here is an article just full of baseball dogs.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

On the latest episode of From Complex to Queens, the guys discuss what should have been the start of the minor league season and what they had been looking forward to this season.

This Date in Mets History
