Wilmer Flores Newsbeat

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Wilmer Flores ignores another slight: ‘I want to be a Met forever’ | New York Post

It’s easy to like this kid.

Here is how he practices for his multi-position gig.

“Every day I will work one position and work the whole day there,” Flores said. “Today I worked at third base. One day at third. One day at second. One day at short. One day at first.’’

The uniform remains the same and that is the bottom line. He’s been a Met since he was 16.

“I want to accept this role. I have to accept this role,’’ Flores said. “When I play, I’m going to play like I am an everyday player. This is all I know. I love this organization. They’ve given me everything I needed.

“This team cares about each other, this is really one team and it starts with David Wright. He’s the leader, the captain and he makes you feel a part of this team. We’re going to work harder than ever to get back to the World Series.’’

This is his baseball life.

“I’m very proud to be a Met,’’ Flores said. “If it ever happens again, if I get traded, I will be sad. I will probably cry again.

“But hopefully not on the field.’’
