Mets Not Horsing Around

vic blackWhile Mets players typically hustle around the field during a game, two players had to use their quick reflexes for a peculiar reason.

According to reports, the team’s outfielder Matt den Dekker and relief pitcher Vic Black had to run away from a horse that got loose from its carriage.

The duo was hanging out in Central Park last week on an off-day for the team when den Dekker saw the horse racing towards him.

He noticed that the horse was coming at a fast speed and no one was driving the animal.

Reports say the horse was detached from the carriage and ran towards the park. It is unclear how that happened or what scared the horse.

The animal was caught on a taxi door, ripping it off the car. Black took a photo of the damage (pictured above) and tweeted it out to his followers. A group of horse carriage drivers were eventually able to catch the horse and stop it from causing more havoc.
