The New York Mets baseball team donned caps featuring the NYPD logo during batting practice on Tuesday in honor of slain police officer Brian Moore.

Moore died Monday after being shot while attempting to capture a man wielding a firearm in the city’s borough of Queens.

“It’s part of what we think is important and certainly, honoring Officer Moore is important today and so we are wearing them and wearing them with pride,” New York Mets manager Terry Collins told the Associated Press.

New York’s Citi Field also featured a banner honoring Moore’s legacy and held a moment of silence to celebrate his work.

Previously, the Mets wore NYPD and FDNY caps to honor the work of New York’s first responders during 9/11.
