Former Mr. Met calls it a 'slap in the face' that the team denied him an NL Winner ring

A man who spent fifteen years with the NY Mets organization including twelve wearing team mascot Mr. Met'south large baseball head wasn't among the seven hundred fifty people to get a National League Championship ring for the two thousand fifteen season.

During latest year'south campaign, the Mets hired the person who'd become the replacement for Steven Boldis, who left to pursue a career in construction. Presently Boldis is beautiful miffed that they didn't fit him for a ring:

"I just wanted to make clear some things on the ring situation, first and foremost I'm still a Mets fan and will always be one," Boldis said in a statement, per the NY Daily News. "I worked some of the best seasons and some of the worst but (was) always behind the team one hundred%."

"This to me was a slap in the face. I'll always be a Mets fan but it just won't be the same."

According to the Daily News, the Mets apparently denied Boldis the jewelry based on a technicality:

"There were specific criteria for part-time and per diem employees related to hours worked latest season," a Mets spokesman said. "He worked approximately half of the required hours latest season, didn't meet the criteria, and as such didn't get a ring."

Okay, so the team didn't wish to set a precedent and start fielding requests from cotton confection vendors. But Arrive on.

This is Mr. Met! The lifeblood of the fan experience and one of the most recognizable mascots in the league! The destitute guy had to wear a giant baseball head and sing and dance during 90-plus degree summer days -- even during a couple 90-loss seasons! Exclamations!

Presently here'south the other kick in the rear:

"Last year, my final year, the Mets hired who'd be my replacement," Boldis said. "They got a full time job, only worked maybe a mo of games, and received a ring."

Come on, Mets and/or Mets fans. Do the right thing. Kickstarters have been launched over distant less, e. g., potato salad.
