I’m proud to say that the 4th team in our #SummerOfBaseball Series is once again from a team that’s near and dear to my heart, the St. Lucie Mets.
St. Lucie is the High-A ball affiliate of the New York Mets and plays in the Florida State League at Tradition Field. While Mets fans may be more familiar with St. Lucie and Tradition Field as the Spring Training home of the big club, it also houses our one of the team’s minor league clubs.
Many current Mets have come through the St. Lucie ranks and on their way up to the majors and players from the big club have played for St. Lucie while on rehab assignments. Current Mets who have played for St. Lucie on their way to the Show include Steven Matz, Kevin Plawecki, Noah Syndergaard, Wilmer Flores, Jacob deGrom, Daniel Muno, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Juan Lagares, Eric Campbell, Juerys Familia, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jenrry Mejia, Lucas Duda, Ruben Tejada, Dillon Gee, Daniel Murphy, Bobby Parnell, Jon Niese, and David Wright.
The St. Lucie Mets were awesome enough to send two balls up for this #SummerOfBaseball series – a logo ball with the 2015 Florida League All Star game logo as well as an official Florida State League ball.
So if you’re visiting the St. Lucie area – go check out the next crop of Mets before they become stars!
