Mojo Rising Bracket: (7) Todd Hundley vs. (10) Benny Agbayani

(7) Todd Hundley – One time owner of the Mets single-season home run record and MLB single-season home run record for a catcher. Moment was featured as a hologram on the 1997 Mets Yearbook. Drew first walk of Subway Series play and would have the first stolen base with a steal of home. Two time All-Star and popular player who had fans in the stands known as the Todd Squad

(10) Benny Agbayani – Like Sid Fernandez, the native Hawaiian wore the number 50. Set a record in 1999 with 10 homers in his first 73 at-bats. Outlasted the competition to not only stay on the 2000 roster but become an everyday left fielder. That began with his Sayonara Slam in the first regular season series ever played in Japan. Hit a walk-off homer in the 13th inning of Game 3 of the NLDS. Hit a game winning double in Game 3 of the World Series. Greeted with chants of “Benny” and Mets grasped onto the “Benny and the Mets” riff on the Elton John hit.
