Bobby Valentine and Todd Zeile were both part of the Mets in 2001, when the team returned to Shea Stadium for the first game played in New York following the terrorist attacks of September 11th.
The former manager Valentine and third baseman Zeile recalled their emotions from that day 18 years ago.
"It was a blur. I remember the feeling, I remember the fear, the confusion," said Valentine. "I remember the heartache in every eye that you looked into. ... It was a real different world for about two weeks for us, and it's been a real different world for 18 years for many."
