Attention, Mets: This is your captain speaking.

“This is probably one of the proudest days of my career so far,” David Wright said yesterday after the Mets named him the fourth captain in franchise history. “For me, it’s a dream come true to say the least.”

Not that anyone has questioned the identity of the Mets’ true leader over the last several years, but the team finally got around to making it official.

Wright joined Keith Hernandez (1987-89), Gary Carter (1988-89) and John Franco (2001-04) as the only Mets to hold the captain’s title.

But forget about Wright wearing a “C” on his uniform to billboard his status: After consulting with manager Terry Collins, general manager Sandy Alderson and COO Jeff Wilpon, he’s decided against such a measure.

“We’re all in agreement that it will be without,” Wright said. “Part of it is just my personality where I don’t like to stick out too much. I think the uniform is uniform for a reason. Everybody is kind of in agreement that we’re going to do without.”

Derek Jeter (Yankees) and Paul Konerko (White Sox) are the only other active players with the title of captain. Jeter received his designation in 2003 and Konerko in 2006.

Wilpon, who attended a press conference at Tradition Field with Alderson to announce the appointment, said it became obvious Wright would be named captain after he agreed to an eight-year contract extension worth $138 million in December.
