Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past

This week, Rob Wolff travels back in time to 1998 for the debut of Masato Yoshii, the “Japanese Greg Maddux.” Learn about his surprising playoff role, his post-Mets career, and an interaction with another Met-adjacent personality from the last days of his playing career.

As always, you can listen or subscribe to the podcast through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, or listen through the embedded player below.
