In the following video you’ll find a touching story about the bond third baseman David Wright has forged with a disabled Iraqi war veteran named Felix, and how their relationship has grown over the years. The wheelchair bound veteran tells an inspiring story of what his United States flag means to him and the role it has played during his tours when he carried it in the deserts of Iraq and how it made its way into the clubhouse after Team USA pulled out a dramatic comeback to clinch a spot in the semi-final round during the 2009 WBC. Mets third baseman David Wright drove in the game winning run in that game with a walk-off hit to clinch the victory for Team USA. After the game, combat veteran Felix, a die-hard Met fan, shared in the celebration as Team USA all signed his flag for him. Your browser does not support iframes. Hat tip to Kay for the link.
