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

Bruce Chen was a notable pitching prospect in a deep, pitching-rich Braves organization.

He found his way to the Mets early in his long, journeyman career, making only 11 starts for the team—with one coming in one of the most memorable games in franchise history.

As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts 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.
