Meet The Mets - Yo La Tengo

from the album Yo La Tengo Is Murdering The Classics (2006)

Last Wednesday night, New York Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores broke into tears on the field during a game against the Padres.  Apparently, social media went viral with reports that he had been traded to Milwaukee to the point that many in the home town crowd gave him a standing ovation when he came to bat.

They say that nobody cries in baseball, but Mets fans understand Flores' emotions.  Our hearts get broken all the time.

So, in honor of Wlmer Flores and Mets fans everywhere, here is Yo La Tengo performing a lo-fi cover of the New York Mets theme song.
