MLB will not fine or discipline Pete Alonso and / or the Mets in any way for the custom clothing celebrating 9/11, which they wore without permission during Wednesday night's game, a source told for SNY's Andy Martino .
Alonso decided to have custom watches made after being rejected by MLB on his first plan for the Mets to wear custom first responder hats during the game.
"It was just a small gift from me to my teammates," Alonso said after the match. "I'm really happy that everyone wore the shoes, because we could have been fined," Alonso said. "I'm really just happy that everyone was behind me and got stuck with this. You don't have to be baseball fans, I hope the people generally appreciate this."

Since I wear first responder hats in the game in each game 2001 after the attacks on September 11, MLB has refused to let the Mets wear the hats in the game every September since.
