Meet Captain America: David Wright

Twitter has been abuzz lately with a new American superhero, Team USA third baseman David Wright, whose 10 RBI through four World Baseball Classic games are tied for the most ever in a single WBC. Television announcers have taken to calling Wright “Captain America,” so in advance of tonight’s game against the Dominican Republic, we asked fans in the Twitterverse for their best Photoshop mock-ups.

Some honorable mentions from @Miss_Met (again), @Ron_Gibbons and @bfeezy13:


Then again, it may be hard to top Mets PR guru @Jay_HorwitzPR, who appeared on Twitter as Captain America’s sidekick, Bucky:

As for Wright, the third baseman laughed when asked about his new Captain America nickname.

“Am I going to be walking around wearing a super hero costume?” he said. “Probably not. Maybe for Halloween next year.”
