16 Days

1994 Bowman #400

We are 16 days away from the start of another season of New York Mets baseball!  The Amazins will invade D.C. on April 6 to take on the defending NL East champions, the Washington Nationals.

Lee Mazzilli, Paul LoDuca and Angel Pagan each wore the No. 16 for the Mets, but none can hold a candle to the man who made it famous in Flushing.  That would, of course, be Dr. K himself, Dwight Gooden.

Added Knowledge:  In what would be his final victory in a New York Mets uniform, Doc hurled eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball in Florida to defeat the Marlins, 6-1, on June 19, 1994.
