In keeping with their tradition of heartfelt ceremonies on September 11 — the aftermath of which Bobby Valentine’s Mets were deeply involved in — the team will recognize a man who lost his son in the terrorist attacks.
When Jeff Crowther takes the mound this September 11, before the Mets’ 7:10 game with Washington, his thoughts will turn to his son Welles, one of the unsung heroes during the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
With his trademark red bandana strapped round his head, Welles was credited for saving at least a dozen lives at the World Trade Center. He lost his own life in the process.
