Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 2006
July 11th, 2012 by slangon

The Mets would set a new franchise record by sending an amazing 6 players to the All-Star game in 2006. Four of them were voted in as starters, but not all were able to play.

Pedro was named to his 8th All-Star Game, his second as a Met. It would turn out to be his last. Again, he did not play because of a calf injury.

Much like Pedro, this was Glavine’s 10th ASG, his second as a Met and also his last. And also like Pedro, he did not see any action.

Reyes was named to his first All-Star team in 2006. He was actually voted in as a starter but could not play after injuring his finger stealing second a few days before the ASG.

Beltran was making his second All-Star start as a Met. He had a great night, going 2 for 4, including a double. He also scored 1 run and stole a base. He ended up playing all 9 innings.

Paul Lo Duca was also a starter for the N.L. that night. He took an 0-fer in his 2 at-bats. He also grounded into a double play.

David Wright was also named as the starting third baseman for the N.L. This was his first All-Star team. He had a great night as well, hitting a home run in his very first All-Star at-bat. That was coming off the heels of hitting 22 dingers in the Home Run Derby the night before.
