Pete Alonso of the New York Mets is arguably the most likable athlete in New York right now. From setting the single-season rookie home run record, to making personalized thank yous for medical professionals dealing with the coronavirus, he's doing everything right.
He's giving so much, in fact, that it's time for the Mets to give a little back. Alonso has continued his advocacy for the Mets to bring back their black jerseys with a call for them on Twitter Saturday morning, and it's time for them to heed his message.
This isn't nearly the first time he's voiced his opinion on Twitter about the matter, either.
Even his teammate Marcus Stroman supports the move.
The Mets should definitely listen to their young star. Alonso is only advocating for the jerseys to make Friday night appearances, and after the record-setting year he had in 2019, they owe him at least that much.
The Mets are heading into a new, and hopefully successful, era, and starting a new tradition to help reestablish winning ways would be refreshing for Mets fans.
It's time for the organization to give back to Alonso what he gave them in 2019. As a message to the Mets from everyone, bring back the black jerseys!
