The Mets made an unfortunate mistake on Friday night.

Before their game against the Mariners at Citi Field, Japanese ambassador Mikio Mori was supposed to throw out the first pitch on Japanese heritage night, but unfortunately, the Mets had already taken the field, and pitcher Max Scherzer wouldn’t allow Mori to take the mound.

The Mets and Citi Field reportedly put out a statement apologizing to Mori, but fans were not happy with how the situation went down.
