WATCH: Mets Catcher Taylor Teagarden Hits A Grand Slam
- Updated: June 10, 2014
The New York Mets catching situation this season has been, to say the least, pretty bad.
With the demotion this past weekend of Travis d’Arnaud, the Mets called up former Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles catcher Taylor Teagarden from AAA-Las Vegas.
With the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning facing Marco Estrada of the Milwaukee Brewers, he did something only one other Mets player in their history has done…
Hit a Grand Slam in his first game as a member of the Mets.
Not since Mets legend Collin Cowgill last year on Opening Day, had a player in his debut for the team hit a Grand Slam but now Teagarden is on the list.
Also in the realm of weird stats, he became only the second Mets player with the initials T.T. in team history to his a grand slam.
The first was current third base coach Tim Teufel. Thank you Ed Leyro (@Studi_Metsimus) for that fact.
So the Mets can hit with the bases loaded and at home. Even for just one day from a career backup catcher, it was nice to see.
