In January, the 29-year old detective was shot at the base of his skull while chasing down a suspect in Bushwick.
The gunman turned around and shot Brennan point blank, but he survived. Brennan is back on his feet now, but still suffers from poor vision and a tender spine, the News said.
On Thursday, Brennan, however, hurled out the first pitch amidst loud cheers in Citi Field, the News said.
“Not many people get the chance to throw out the first pitch at a Mets game. I wanted to do it,” Brennan, who was sporting a Mets jersey, told The News.
Wright, whose father is an assistant police chief in Virginia, called Brennan a “hero,” according to the paper.
The Amazins third baseman said that it was “exciting” for him to meet heroes like Brennan because his father is on the force.
Brennan, who was at the game with his family, gushed to the News that it was "awesome" to meet the Mets star.
