After taking his position at third base to begin the top of the fifth inning on Saturday night at Citi Field, Mets captain David Wright was taken out by manager Mickey Callaway.
Once Callaway made the move, Wright began a slow walk from third base to near the pitchers mound, as tears welled up in his eyes. Wright waved to the crowd and made his way off the infield, before greeting his teammates who were all standing outside the dugout waiting to embrace him.
The sold out crowd at Citi Field roared throughout, until Wright left the field. He came back out for a brief curtain call before again leaving the field -- likely for the last time ever -- and entering the clubhouse.
Wright drew a walk on a 3-2 count in the first inning in his first at-bat before being erased on a double play.
During his second and final at-bat, he popped out to first base in the fourth inning.
