Joe Torre and Bobby Valentine, who were the managers for the Yankees and Mets, respectively, in 2001, threw out the game’s first pitch.
Aaron Judge also wore custom cleats for the game, honoring New York City’s first responders who rushed to the scene at the World Trade Center after the buildings were struck by hijacked airplanes.
