The New York Mets They may want to consider changing their team’s colors from orange and blue to black and blue.
Hitting the Mets with a field for the 106th time this season on Wednesday afternoon, Breaking the modern record Most of the time dives are in season.
Last year, the Cincinnati Reds set the record with 105 shootouts, narrowly beating the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were hit 104 in 2021. Both teams have beaten Cleveland since 2008, when their players were fired 103 times.
Today’s Mets entered a draw with Cleveland team, but it looks like Mark Kanha really wanted to make history. And he was injured in two courts on Wednesday to equal the record. In the ninth inning, Louis Gillorm hit a slip in his foot, breaking the record.
It was the eighth time the Mets had hit at least three pitches in a game this season, and Mets manager Buck Showalter asked the ball boy to keep the infamous ball that set the new record.
Canha now leads all MLB players by hitting 24 stadiums this year. This franchise record was also broken by teammate Brandon Nimo, who was injured 22 times in 2018.
The Mets have had their fair share of hit-and-run accidents. On April 8, the Mets’ second game of the season, they cleared the seats with the Washington Nationals when Francisco Lindor hit in the face with the playing field.
Later that month, before the Mets had any idea they were likely to make infamous history, Showalter met with MLB officials about the issue.
Showalter seemed to be out of control of baseballs by the time he met the league.
“Let’s be frank about that,” Showalter said at the time. “The shooters have taken baseball so far with Spider Tack and made it a shooting advantage for turn rate and all, and now I’m not sure we haven’t gone very far in reverse. Mud-rubbed baseball in April, early May and October is a real spot, the pink It doesn’t do as much as you think.. Somehow I think we’ve gone too far.
“I’ve always pushed for a universal throwing cloth behind the pile where players can flick their fingers, and there won’t be guys being hit about as much. I think a lot of the hits through the pitches guys can’t control in baseball.”
The Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates had a bench evacuation accident last week after Pete Alonso hit a court, but perhaps their biggest fight was against the St. Louis Cardinals, also in April, when the Mets responded by going a bit. up-and-in on Nolan Arenado.
The Mets’ previous franchise record for hitters was 95 in 2019. They hit 94 of them last year and 73 the year before. All of their first four numbers in franchise history have come in the last four full seasons of MLB (2020 was a 60-game season).
The Mets lost Wednesday’s game to the Milwaukee Brewers 6-0.
The Mets have 11 more games to play, so they’ll likely break the record. They’re on their way to getting 113 shots.
