Countdown to Mets Fantasy Camp 46 Days to Go.

November 27, 2014

Every year for the last 3 years as Spring gives way to Fall, Mets season merges into NY Rangers season, I have been able to keep the baseball side of my brain occupied with thoughts of Mets Fantasy Camp. This year more so then ever, in the past I have simply gone down to cover the week long camp as a reporter, this season I am headed down to actually participate as a player. Each year I have tried to find unique ways of counting down the days until camp and sharing them with Mets fans, So this year I will do the countdown by Jersey numbers, When possible I will post my 3 favorite Mets who have worn that number, some numbers are harder then others.

 

#46

 

#1 Neil Allen

Neil Allen was one of the first professional athletes I ever interviewed.  Aside from being a very good relief pitcher he was one of the most honest and humorous players of his era. He was used to obtain the glue of the 1986 Championship Keith Hernandez. He would also have an impact on the NY Yankees as well as while the Columbus Clippers pitching coach,he introduced the sinker to Chien-Ming Wang that would become his signature pitch.

 

 

#2

Oliver Perez

Yes Oliver Perez, only because of his great pitching in the Endy Chavez game, a game the Mets would eventually lose, but Ollie was amazing in that game.
