Mets players are preparing to play one final time with captain David Wright.

The 35-year-old third baseman announced Thursday he would be activated for the Mets’ final homestand and start during their game Sept. 29 before retiring after the season. Jose Reyes, who was teammates with Wright from 2005-11 before re-joining New York in 2016, said he was emotional when he heard the news.

“We were both crying, it was a tough moment,” Reyes said (via The New York Post). “I didn’t know what to say in the moment. I just said, ‘I love you, bro, so enjoy your family.’ I didn’t have too many words to say.”

Reyes and Wright were the Mets’ brightest young stars when they entered MLB in the early 2000s. They both made multiple All-Star teams and led New York to the 2006 NLCS. Wright was also a part of the Mets run to the 2015 World Series, where they fell to the Royals in five games.

The third baseman has been on the disabled list since May 2016 as he has dealt with shoulder and back injuries. Reyes, who has struggled at the plate this season, said he hopes the two have the chance to share the field in Wright’s last game.

“That, for sure, will be one of the highlights of my career if that happens,” Reyes said.

Current Mets starter Steven Matz said he admired Wright while he was growing up on nearby Long Island.

“Some of these guys from the West Coast, the new guys coming up, I don’t know if they got the opportunity to see how good of a player he was,” Matz said. “The guy was unbelievable.”

Matz said Wright is “really leaving a legacy” in the organization.

“If we are ever arguing anything (in the clubhouse) it’s ‘Let’s ask David.’ That is the type of guy he is,” Matz said. “His opinion is so valued. His character is so valued here.

“I can tell my grandkids that I started Game 4 of the World Series with David Wright at third base. That is something I am definitely going to carry with me.”
