What do the current Mets remember about the 2000 World Series?
Michael Conforto is too young to remember 2000 Series
How much do you remember from the year 2000? That season was a magical one for the Flushing faithful as the Mets mowed through their postseason opponents to represent the National League in the World Series (and the movie "Frequency" came out).
At World Series Media Day, Cut4 asked the current Mets what they remember from that Fall Classic from the turn of the Millennium and we learned a few important facts.
- Tyler Clippard champions the underdogs, so he didn't want the Mets or the Yankees to win
- Michael Conforto was only 7, and claims he was too young to remember anything about the Subway Series
- Fellow Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer was already playing pro ball (he hit .263 at Double-A New Britain in the Twins system)
- Most of the guys were adolescents making the transition from the Little League diamond to the big-boy one with 90-foot basepaths
- If they remember anything about that World Series, it's the infamous dustup between Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens
The Mets will visit the Royals in Kansas City for Game 1 of the 2015 World Series on Tuesday. Coverage starts at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX with game time scheduled for 8 p.m.
