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

With the trade deadline just in our rear view mirror, we look back at the brief Mets tenure of reliever Royce Ring. Ring was a first round draft pick of the Chicago White Sox, heralded as a closer of the future. While his career with the Mets—and afterwards—was not particularly notable, the trades which brought Ring to Flushing and sent him away were memorable ones in franchise history.

Hear about Ring’s brief tenure with the 2005-2006 Mets squads, and about his continued connection to the Mets organization.
