Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 1988
July 10th, 2012 by slangon

I sort of forget what a good time the mid to late 80’s were for Mets fans. Once again, 1988 saw 4 members of the New York National League team head to the All-Star Game.

Once again, Doctor K was named to the All-Star squad. Once again, he was chosen to start the game. He didn’t do as bad as 1986, but he still didn’t pitch a clean game. He worked 3 innings, allowing 1 earned run on 3 hits. He struck out 1 and walked 1. The one run came on a solo homer by Terry Steinbach.

Darryl once again was in right field at the top of the first inning. He collected 1 hit in 4 trips to the plate, an infield single in the 4th. He ended up playing all 9 innings.

The Kid was also named a starter for the National League. He also ended up with a single and was pulled for a pinch hitter in the 7th.

David Cone earned hit first All-Star berth in 1988. He pitched a 1-2-3 5th inning, which included striking out Paul Molitor.
