Trivia Friday – Mets All Stars In Consecutive Years
For the second straight season, the Mets are launching a write-in campaign for one of their outfielders left off the ballot. Last year, it was Michael Conforto. This year, it is Brandon Nimmo. While the write-in campaign will likely be unsuccessful, it is likely Nimmo will join Jacob deGrom on this year’s All Star roster.
While deGrom has previously been an All Star, he has not been one in consecutive seasons, which is partially due to his stepping aside for Bartolo Colon in 2007. In any event, the Mets have had 20 players be named All Stars in consecutive years. Can you name them? Good luck!
