After the Mets (American professional baseball team) completed an 8-7 win against the Marlins at Citi Field, they decided to carry out their usual tradition of showing the player of the game wearing his crown in the clubhouse. In this case, the player was T.J. Rivera.
The photo that was displayed was taken in front of the locker of catcher Kevin Plawecki. Unfortunately, Kevin Plawecki had a big-black-dildo in his locker and it was prominently displayed in the proudly presented photo.
Although, the Mets decided to delete their tweets as soon as they discovered the embarrassing toy in the photo but it was a bit too late because some Twitter users have already captured the original screen shots.
Although the Mets claimed that the toy was placed there as part of a clubhouse prank, but the truth may never be known.
The Mets are one of two Major League clubs based in New York City and they compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) East division.
