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 to the late 1990’s, when Interleague play finally became a reality. On June 16, 1997, the Mets and the Yankees tangled in the first meaningful game between two New York baseball franchises in forty years. That game would thrust an unheralded mid-rotation starter named Dave Mlicki into the spotlight, where he would have the game of his life.
