Batting first, Centerfielder....
Batting Second, the shortstop...
Batting Third, second baseman...
Batting in the cleanup position, left fielder...
Batting fifth, the right fielder...
And batting sixth for the Mets, first baseman
Batting seventh and playing third...

Leader card: 1963 Mets '62 Pitching leaders:
Now maybe you can see what I mean by early Met leader cards looking funny. Meh, it is what it is. Gotta take the bad with the good. '62 leader cards have been added to the '63 Fantazy Met Card page.

  1. re: Hobie Landrith as the Mets first draft choice. When asked why Hobie Landrith was drafted first Casey Stengel replied "Without a catcher, you'll have a lot of passed balls."
