Ricky Ledee Promoted

Vamos Mets T-shirt

Ricky Ledee has been promoted, just in time for the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City this Sunday. Too bad Ricky will be in Detroit during the festivities.

David Newhan was demoted to make room for Ledee.

If you want to show your support for the Mets and Puerto Rico at the same time, check out this shirt in the Hand-picked Mets Store — which includes the depiction above.

It’s also a fine way to show your heritage and support for the Puerto Rican Mets, such as Ledee, Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, and Pedro Feliciano. It’s probably too late for this Sunday, but plenty of time to get it in time for Fiesta Latina night on August 24th at Shea Stadium.
