"It kind of got me off my game a little bit," said Wright, who went on the DL in the spring with a sore hamstring and ended up diagnosed with spinal stenoisis. "I had to step out and just try to focus on the task at hand because I was overwhelmed with the support."
This was also the first time the third baseman remembers Citi Field getting as loud as Shea used to.
"I haven't experienced this much since this place opened," Wright said. "It's everything I expected it would be. This place was rocking."
Wright may get Saturday off as a routine day off rest, manager Terry Collins said.
