Been floating this one on twitter @metspolice
Name a Mets tradition
We all know the jokes, let's skip those...looking for Mets traditions. The franchise is going to be a half-century old. There's must be some traditions by now, right?
One I can think of is that the players come out on "Closing Day" and thank the fans.

There's also the horseshoe bouquet of flowers presented on Opening Day and No. 24. They haven't retired it, but they have refrained from assigning it to anyone, with two exceptions. Kelvin Torve had it for 10 days in August 1990, and I don't know why that was. And then they allowed Rickey Henderson to wear it because 1) I believe he originally wore it for Willie in the first place, and 2) by the time he was a Met, Rickey was considered a legend (as in future Hall of Famer), so he fit the qualifications, such as they were.
I may come up with more...
