This Date in Mets History

This year's MLB draft is scheduled to begin Thursday, but drafts that begin on June 5th have been kind to the Mets. The team picked Lee Mazzilli on this date in 1973 and David Wright in 2001. Three coaches also got fired on this date, possibly helping to pave the way for the magical 1999 season.
