Despite getting swept out of the MLB playoffs by the Mets, the Chicago Cubs displayed that they are a first-class organization with a classy gesture towards the Mets’ captain. The team gifted the third base bag used in Game 4 of the NLCS to David Wright who has manned the position for the Mets for the past dozen years.

Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and MLB Network, was on hand to capture a photo of the bag which commemorates Wright’s first trip to the World Series:

The classy Wright will undoubtedly appreciate the gesture but he will be looking to leave the World Series with some hardware that’s earned, not given.
