Former And Current Mets Abound On All-WBC Team
The 2013 All-World Baseball Classic team was announced Wednesday, and the squad is riddled with Mets both current and former alike.
Of course “Captain America” aka David Wright, who’s .438 batting average and 10 RBIs earned him the nickname made the team. Wright was also the only American to make the cut.
From the reigning champion Dominican Republic, former Met spark plug and current Blue Jay Jose Reyes made the team as did former Mets prospect Nelson Cruz.
Finally hailing from Puerto Rico, Angel Pagan and former swingman Nelson Figueroa were also selected, playing integral roles in bringing Puerto Rico to the finals.
Fans and media combined to pick the team sponsored by MetLife. Fernando Rodney, Yadier Molina, and Robinson Cano were among some of the others chosen.
