Mets alumni update
Time to dip into the folder of Mets autograph scans I haven’t gotten around to posting yet:
Shawn Green had a 15-year major league career and was an All-Star for both the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Dodgers. Acquired in a late-season trade in 2006, Green appeared in the playoffs for the 2006 Mets. He finished his baseball career with the Mets in 2007. I remember Green didn’t play because of Yom Kippur in 2006, and I remember he frequently lost his cap while pursuing fly balls in the outfield… but I can’t really recall much else about Green’s Mets tenure.
Lenny Harris spent 18 years in the majors, from 1988-2005. He played for eight teams, including the New York Mets in 1998, 2000 and 2001. While with the Mets in 2001, Harris broke Manny Mota‘s career pinch hits record. I remember the countdown until Harris passed Mota’s hit total, because that was one of the few things of interest surrounding the Mets during the final days of the 2001 season.
What do you recall about Shawn Green and Lenny Harris?
