Pete Alonso. I tried not to fall under your sway. You seem to be too good to be true. From donating part of your winnings
from the HR Derby to wanting to do something special to remember the heroes and the victims of 9/11.
You stepped up. @metspolice and I have been yelling for years about wearing the caps. Folks have rallied
behind this also. Pete, you sidestepped the rules to show reverence to this tragic day. I give you credit for this.
A lot of credit. Good job.
