That video begin making the rounds on social media and the New York Mets were forced to address the situation, so they issued an apology. He got more cheers in the sixth inning, when he launched souvenirs along the first base side.
"My whole family was there to watch me play and then, like - bam!"
Citing two team officials familiar with the situation, the Daily News reported the employee was not sacked but would no longer portray Mr Met.
The incident occurred during a 7-1 home loss the Brewers, the latest setback for an injury-plagued team that began the season with World Series aspirations.
NY actually benefited from the call when Sogard hit into an inning-ending double play.
"He's closer than I anticipated him being", Hurdle told the team's website.
"He showed me the curveball before and kind of locked me up a little bit, but he threw it out of the same slot the next time and I was able to put a good swing on it", Wainwright said.
The Mets mounted their only threat against Anderson in the second, when Duda singled and Curtis Granderson walked with one out.
Shortly after the clip was uploaded, it was also turned into a gif, with a sports blogger adding: "I need Mr Met flipping the bird in gif form and I will use it in perpetuity forever and ever".
Right-hander Junior Guerra (1-0) cruised to the win by allowing four hits and three walks while striking out four over six shutout innings.
The batter was initially called out, but the call was reversed after an umpire conference because of Rule 6.01 (d), which states.
"You can't get mad at him", Flores said. Terry Collins was irate at the call and ended up getting himself ejected by arguing it. "He went the wrong way".
After a couple of excellent starts, deGrom was clearly struggling tonight. It would be one thing if it's a hard play. After threatening a bit in the first and second innings against Brewers' starter Junior Guerra, they were largely silenced by the right hander's split finger, as he held the Mets scoreless over six innings. "Once our starting pitchers really get rolling and our bats heat up, we're one of the best teams in baseball".
"That's like our go-to - have a happy flight", said left fielder Nick Franklin, who threw a runner out at the plate and hit an RBI single.
