Mets Battle Johnny Bench in 1973 NLCS
Date: October 6–10, 1973
Future National Baseball Hall of Famer Johnny Bench awaited a pitch during the 1973 NLCS. The Cincinnati Reds catcher led the team in RBIs (104) during the regular season, but the Mets held him to just 1 run batted in during the series.
