Some Met Trivia Help Please

Aug 09 2005 09:52 AM

Today's Dail News said that Reyes' 20 game hitting streak brings him within 4 of the Met all-time record, shared by two people.
But didn't Mike Vail have one that lasted around 30 games in his rookie year?

The number 23 sticks in my head for Vail.

Vail's 23 tied a record that had previously been set by Cleon Jones.

Hubie broke it with 24, and Piazza later tied Hubie's record.

Vail had a 23 game hitting streak in '75. It ended in an 18 inning game vs. the Expos at Shea when Dale Murray walked Felix Millan with the bases loaded. Vail had like 8 plate apperances that night and couldn't get a hit.

Weird coincidence: I was at Game 19 in both Floyd's and Reyes's hit streaks this year... and I've only been to three games at Shea.

Thanks for the info, folks.
