METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 5, 1994 GAME:Quality Met
August 9, 2010
In this game, Jonathan Hurst and John Cangelosi made their Mets' debuts. Both entered in the eighth inning. Hurst pitched two shutout innings to seal the win and Cangelosi went 0-for-1.
The appearances of Hurst and Cangelosi created a unique situation. They became the 500th and 501st major leaguers to play for the Mets. Noticed by Mets Inside Pitch, the magazine decided to declare which of these two players was officially the 500th Met. Hurst was given the 500 spot since, being the pitcher, he touched the ball before Cangelosi did. John had to settle for No. 501.
Not exactly the most important of issues, but Inside Pitch decided to solve it anyway.
