NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Mets have worn NYPD hats during batting practice before a game against Baltimore to honor a police officer who was shot and killed this week while on duty.
The Mets and Orioles lined up for a moment of silence Tuesday at Citi Field to honor Officer Brian Moore. Police officers stood next to the teams and Moore's picture was shown on the scoreboard.
Mets manager Terry Collins says the club wore the police hats with pride. The Mets wore their regular hats for the game.
Moore died Monday, two days after he tried to stop a man suspected of carrying a handgun.
The 25-year-old Moore was the son, nephew and cousin of police officers and also an Orioles fan whose favorite player was Chris Davis.
