Ben Revere Apologizes for Putting Lettuce and Tomato On His Cheesesteak

Hey, at least he’s a quick learner.

Ben Revere was welcomed to town yesterday and got his Philadelphia feet wet by ordering a cheesesteak at Chickie’s and Pete’s — sort of. The center fielder made the mistake of ordering a chicken cheesesteak and putting lettuce and tomato on it.

The twitterverse was outraged. Some even wrote lengthy screeds about the horrible mistep.

Alas, Ben apologized profusely on Daily News Live last night and promised to never make that mistake again.


He also said he plans to hit a home run someday, which is nice.
