In two seasons with the Mets, Jones provided multiple walk-off heroics, primarily off of the bench.

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

Chris Jones was primarily a bench player and backup outfielder in the middle of a journeyman career when he joined the New York Mets in 1995.

Jones quickly developed a knack for dramatic moments in New York, delivering two walk off home runs during the 1995 season, and two more the following season. His four walk-off home runs tying a record for the most in franchise history.
