The Mets are on a homerun barrage lately. They’re even getting homeruns now from some in their “streakier” players. With that in mind, can you name the Top 10 in homeruns by Mets first baseman (as of today)? Good luck.
On April 15, 1997, President Clinton attended a Mets-Dodgers game in Shea Stadium. He was there to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier. During the pre-game tribute, it was announced that 42 would be retired throughout baseball. Afterwards, a diverse group of Mets players would play in a game against a group of diverse Dodgers players. Can you name the Mets starting lineup on this momentous day? Good luck!
Since Lucas Duda became the Mets everyday first baseman in 2014, he has been amongst the best first baseman in baseball. Beginning in 2014, Duda has amassed a 6.6 WAR, which is better than 21 of the players projected to open the season as their team’s Opening Day first baseman. Can you name those 21 players? Good luck!
While the Mets are preparing for the 2016 season, like everyone else, they also have an eye on the NCAA Tournament. Certain Mets players have more of a rooting interest than others having actually attended schools that qualified for the tournament. Can you name the players? Good luck!
With the Mets young staff poised to led them to yet another postseason appearance, and God willing, another World Series, I’m reminded of all the pitchers who have started a postseason game for the Mets. Can you name them? Good luck!
As the Mets have begun playing Spring Training games, they have begun their defense of the National League pennant and have their sights on the World Series. Part of the run of any pennant is seeing how far your team has come. We know the 2015 roster and lineup changes dramatically from Opening Day.
Each Mets team that has won a pennant has had a different ride featuring different players who were there from the beginning. Can you name the players in the Opening Day lineup each year the Mets won the pennant? Good luck.
Because of Chase Utley, Major League Baseball has a new rule about how you can properly slide into second base. Another result of the coward‘s tackle is that the Mets will have yet another Opening Day shortstop in 2016. Since the Mets last won the World Series 30 years ago, the Mets have had twelve Opening Day shortstops. Can you name them? Good luck!
In 2016, the Mets attempt to return to and win the World Series. If they’re able to return to the World Series, they will become the 17th National League team to go to back to back World Series. Can you name the other teams that have completed the task? Good luck!
