See if you can name all of the players to have done so.

Having just covered three-home run games by Mets, we turn the Mind Boggler toward speed, asking you to try to name all of the players who have stolen three or more bases in a single game in Mets history. There have been 32 such games, with 17 unique players having swiped three bags in a game.

That list includes four instances in which a Mets player stole four bases, and you might be a little surprised to see which players are tied for the franchise record with that mark. Two of those games happened exactly ten years apart, which is pretty neat.

You’ll have seven minutes for this quiz, and as per usual, last name-only answers work. Good luck, and when you’re done, remember to come back here to post your time and score in the comments! And hat tip to the Baseball-Reference Play Index, the source for this data and the vast majority of the data used in this series over the years.
