Former New York Mets pitcher and current team analyst Keith Hernandez ended the 2017 year by attending President Donald Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Largo, according to the Palm Beach Post and the New York Daily News. Hernandez was a member of the 1986 World Series championship Mets team.

This is nothing new for Trump, as the story says that he has been hosting New Year’s Eve parties at his Florida residence for years. But this may be interesting, as the majority of New Yorkers voted for Hillary Clinton, despite Trump winning the election.

According to the Washington Post, tickets for the event were $740 dollars. Plus, the security was ramped up, as this is Trump’s first New Year’s Eve as President of the United States of America.

If that’s the case, Hernandez could have shelled out at least $1,500 to attend the party. He also had to pay for flights to Florida, as well.

Hernandez is reportedly a Republican supporter. He even mocked former Democratic candidate Clinton during a game once when she was campaigning.

The 64-year-old played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Mets, and the Cleveland Indians, before retiring in 1990. He was a five-time All-Star and two-time World Series Champion. He was the 1979 NL MVP.

In his 17-year career, he had a career .296 batting average with 162 home runs and 1,071 RBI’s in 2,088 games. He also had 426 doubles and 60 triples in his career.

Hernandez won 11 Golden Gloves in his career.
