Mets wear NYPD caps at batting practice to honor slain police officer

Tuesday May 5th, 2015

The New York Mets are wearing NYPD caps during Tuesday's batting practice to honor slain NYPD officer Brian Moore. 

Moore was shot in the head while in an unmarked police car on Saturday as he tried to question a man in Queens, N.Y. He was in critical condition until he died on Monday due to his injuries. 

"Honoring Officer Moore is important today. We will wear these hats with pride," said manager Terry Collins.

New York is hosting the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. CBS New York reports that Citi Field will hold a moment of silence for Moore before the game.
