In this case, Howie Rose is not just the voice of the Mets. He is the voice of the city.
After Major League Baseball prevented the Mets from wearing FDNY and NYPD caps on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the team's legendary radio broadcaster absolutely tore into the league.
The two-minute rant is not only insightful in asking who the caps could possibly be offending which legal infringements could possibly apply, but is also quite funny, as Rose verbally destroys this years' Players' Weekend uniforms.
Probably the best part about the video is the fact that Rose does his play-by-play for the inning and does not miss a beat when there is a turn in the action. With perfect agility, he gets right back into his argument between pitches.
The MLB's ruling really got the Mets organization fired up, with Pete Alonso making significant contributions to honor the victims and fallen first responders regardless of what the league had to say. A tip of the cap for not backing down.
