The delight is in the details

By clicking on this link, you promise to continue coming to this site and supporting us in your Mets walk-off and minutiae endeavors. It is provided as a public service, for those curious.

It's a list of every Mets regular-season walk-off (minus the "asterisk" game), indexed by player, from 1962 to 2005. The information was compiled by someone with major "Retrosheeting" skills and is part of a site that contains not only a list of walk-offs, by player, by team, but a great deal more entertaining information.

Enjoy, but not too much!!

Those who Chase the Mets know...That since hit streaks will be talked about a great deal these next 3 days (see Chase Utley, 35 games, ongoing) we can tell you that the only Mets player to have a walk-off hit in the midst of a hitting streak lasting 20 or more games is Cleon Jones, whose 14th inning walk-off triple (a one of a kind occurrence in Mets history) beat the Phillies on September 10, 1970. The hit extended his hit streak to 18 games. It would conclude at a then-club record, since broken, 23 games.

A walk-off hitting-streak question: has a player ever had a hitting streak end when he was due to bat in the 9th but a batter before him wont he game with a walk-off?

Yes, that's how luis castillo's 35-game hit streak ended...

Maybe our esteemed host can help out the publisher of the list, in updating the 10/3/99 entry "of unknown play". All true Mets fans know that was the game that sent us to the play-offs in 1999 at Shea. Piazza at the plate, ball goes to the backstop (PB or WP I am not sure, though my money's on WP.

Also noticed that it has been some time since we won a walk off without an RBI.

In total games we would break the record either late this year or early next. But our MWO host will likely have the number soon.

The best Mets ejections I know

When you think of the Mets and famous ejections, I'm guessing you first think of the famous Bobby Valentine mustache game, when after Valentine got tossed, he returned to the dugout in disguise. You know it. You love it. I remember being amused when I asked Bobby V about it while we were working on Baseball Tonight, how he simply said "It worked. We won the game." (true) But the Bobby V mustache game of June 9, 1999 is one of many, many memorable Mets ejection stories. And now thanks to Retrosheet and the magic of , we have a convenient means for being able to share them. Ever since Retrosheet's David Smith recently announced that the Retrosheet ejection database was posted online , I've been a kid in a candy store. I've organized the data and done some lookups of media coverage around the games that interested me post. Those newspaper accounts fill in a lot of blanks. Without further ado (and with more work to do), here are some of my findings

Trip(le) Through Time

In their illustrious history, the Mets have had one 'Triple Crown Winner,' so to speak and I'm not talking about the typical meaning of the term. I've gotten some queries recently as to whether a walk-off triple is even possible and I'm here to tell you that it is. There has been one, and only one, in Mets history, though I don't have the full explanation of circumstances that I would like. It took place against the Phillies on September 10, 1970. This was a marathon game that would have fit in perfectly with those having taken place so far this season and allowed the Mets to maintain a temporary hold on first place in an NL East race oft forgotten in team history. It went 14 innings, with a tinge of controversy in a negated Ken Boswell home run, a thrilling play by Bud Harrelson, who stole home in the third inning, and some stellar relief pitching, in the form of five scoreless innings from Danny Frisella, aided by Tim McCarver getting thrown out in a rundown b
