Kelly Johnson was the last player not listed here to play for both the Mets and the Yankees. The infielder signed with the Yankees as a free agent prior to the 2014 season and played 77 games with them before being traded to the Red Sox at that year’s non-waiver trade deadline.

Johnson then came to the Mets in a midseason trade the following year, when he helped bolster the Mets’ bench en route to the team’s first World Series appearance in 15 years. After signing with the Braves as a free agent for the second consecutive offseason, Johnson returned to the Mets in a midseason trade last year, once again helping the team to a playoff berth.

You’ll have four minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
