The New York Mets will retire Keith Hernandez’s No. 17 during a game at Citi Field this July. He will be the fourth player in the team’s history to be honored in such a way – joining Tom Seaver, Mike Piazza and Jerry Koosman.
Hernandez has spent nearly three decades with the Mets as a player and broadcaster. He led the NL in fielding percentage in 1985 and 1986 with the Mets, won 11 Gold Gloves overall and is a member of the Rawlings Gold Glove Hall of Fame.
