Jets QB Zach Wilson Rocks Custom Jersey At Mets Game
SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU Cougars and current New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson wore a custom jersey while attending the New York Mets’ game against St. Louis Cardinals.
The Mets hosted the Cardinals at Citi Field on Thursday, May 19.
Wilson sat in the front row down the first base line as he watched the game featuring fellow professional athletes in New York.
During the third inning of action, the game’s televised broadcast showed the Jets quarterback sporting a Mets jersey with “Wilson” on the back.
New York’s game against St. Louis is broadcast on MLB.tv.
Other Local Athletes At Mets Games
Wilson isn’t the only local athlete to watch the Mets play in New York. Two days prior to Wilson’s attendance at Citi Field, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell sat near the Mets’ dugout and had a conversation with New York’s Francisco Lindor.
Mitchell’s father, Donovan Mitchell Sr. works in the Mets organization and the Jazz guard grew up as a multisport athlete playing both baseball and basketball.
The All-Star guard is not shy about his Mets fandom, regularly talking about the team during the NBA season and live-tweeting their games.

Since being selected by the Jets with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Wilson has attended multiple professional sporting events in the Big Apple.
Shortly after getting drafted, Wilson and some of his Jets teammates attended a New York Islanders NHL postseason game.
In June 2021, the Jets signal-caller was in the crowd at Madison Square Garden to watch an NBA playoff game between the New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks.
