In addition to the epic Mets win last night in Chicago, we wanted share another bit of epic Mets news.
Shortstop Ruben Tejada, although sidelined to the dugout, stood out behind-the-scenes with a truly rare gift for his teammates in honor of their incredible victory. Each member of the team received a custom engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch whisky that read:
It’s clear that chants for #WinForRuben didn’t go unnoticed by Tejada. This ultimate gift of gratitude shows his continued joy in the success of his team and love of the game.
Tejada even said, "It’s been a long time since the Mets have gotten this far. It’s been a joy to watch my teammates sweep and I wanted to congratulate them with engraved bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. We do have some work cut out for us, but today we're going to enjoy this moment as a team since we worked so hard to get here."
