In the hit film “A League of Their Own,” Tom Hanks famously said there was “no crying in baseball,” apparently there is. Especially when you’re in a game and hear news that you may have just been traded.
New York Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores started tearing up on the diamond after reports surfaced that he had been traded for Brewers All-Star center fielder Carlos Gomez.
Right around the seventh inning is when the news began to hit social media and make its way into the dugout. Flores was left in the game and started to breakdown while in the outfield.
Surreal scene. Mets trade Wilmer Flores but leave him in game. Flores then cries on field while playing. pic.twitter.com/0CDpjGpwpS
