Mets pitcher Dillon Gee says he was tricked into encouraging gun control – A day before being activated from the disabled list, Mets pitcher Dillon Gee was also activated as a promoter of Gun Violence Awareness Day, apparently without his knowledge. To show their support for “Wear Orange,” an initiative of the Everytown for Gun Safety nonprofit co-founded by former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Mets took a team photo Tuesday wearing orange shirts. The Mets became the first pro sports franchise to participate, but Gee was not pleased once he got more background on the campaign and took to Twitter to explain.
