13 Days

1999 Upper Deck Retro #54

We are just 13 days away from the start of another big league baseball season!  The New York Mets open their 2015 campaign on April 6 with a road contest in Washington versus Bryce Harper and the Nationals.

Nineteen different Mets players have worn the No. 13 at some point during their playing days, including Lee Mazzilli, Neil Allen and Billy Wagner.  But, the greatest Met to don the number was former All-Star Edgardo Alfonzo, who also happens to be one of my favorite all-time Mets!

Added Knowledge:  Fonzie won the NL Silver Slugger award at second base in 1999, smashing 27 homers and collecting 108 RBIs.



  1. Wow I had no idea he had a season like that '99 one on record, eye opening for sure!

    1. Yessiree! He finished 8th in MVP voting that year!
