Last week, we asked you to name Mets players who posted high single-season strikeout rates. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re covering players on the opposite end of the spectrum and asking you to name the team’s best contact hitters. Specifically, we’d like you to name every player in Mets history to post a strikeout rate lower than 9% in a season.

Every Met to strike out in fewer than 9% of his plate appearances in a season

Like we did last week, we’re limiting this list to players who qualified for the batting title, which requires at least 502 plate appearances in a 162-game season. Mets players have accomplished the feat 24 times, but because several players did it more than once, only 13 different names are listed here.

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