Mets Spring Training Countdown: 22 Days

October 4, 1999. Al Leiter throws a two-hit shutout in the season's 163rd game.

There were plenty of memorable #22s to choose from, but Al Leiter is as good a choice as any. In the above photo, Leiter delivers a pitch to the Reds on October 4, 1999, in the Mets' 163rd game of the season. The Mets would leave Cincinnati with a 5-0 win. Leiter would leave with a two-hit shutout. The next stop was Arizona where the Mets would begin their LDS series with the Diamondbacks.

Just 22 days to go until pitchers and catchers report.
