The Mets’ A ball affiliate in Brooklyn has found a great way to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Wilmer Flores’s unbelievable three days last summer.
On July 29, Flores broke down in tears on the field as rumors swirled that he was headed to the Brewers in a trade. But the deal fell through, so on July 31 he was able to hit a walk-off homer to lift the Mets over the Nationals.
On July 31 this year, the Brooklyn Cyclones are giving away bobbleheads that pay tribute to both ends of Flores’s emotional rollercoaster. On one side, Flores is crying, distraught to be leaving pizza for cheese curds. On the other, he’s celebrating his walk-off shot.
Have you ever seen a double-sided bobblehead before? That’s pretty awesome.
