HONOR & REMEMBRANCE: On Long Island, Marc Carig notes to mark Tuesday's 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Mets "will continue their long-standing tradition of wearing first responder caps, though only during batting practice and the national anthem." The Mets will "don their regular uniform caps for their game" against the Nationals. The "compromise comes a year after MLB, citing its uniform guidelines, shut down the team's plans to wear first responder caps to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11." This year, the Mets "asked to wear the first responder caps only before the game, a request granted by MLB" (NEWSDAY, 9/7).
