Mets Merized Is Giving Away FREE METS TICKETS! Guess Who This Mets Player Is!
Here is your chance to win a pair of FREE TICKETS to see the Mets play against the Florida Marlins on Monday, April 30th!
During our first two Mets Tickets Contests, we asked you questions about the 2006 Mets. This time we will take you back to the magical season of 1986. Here goes…
I was born in 1962 in Honolulu, Hawaii. I broke into the major leagues at age 20 with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1983 and was traded to the Mets soon after. In 1986 I started 31 games for the New York Mets and went 16-6 with a 3.52 ERA. I also had a career high of 200 strikeouts that season and was elected to my very first All Star Game. During Game 7 of the World Series that season, I came out of the bullpen and retired seven straight Red Sox hitters including four by strikeouts. Who am I?
We hope you have fun with this!
