METS HALL OF FAME PLAQUE OF FIRST TEAM CAPTAIN
The Mets selected their first official team captain in 1987, when Keith Hernandez’s talent on the field and leadership in the clubhouse made him a natural for the title. Traded to the Mets in 1983, Hernandez was one of several star players on the dominant Mets teams of the decade, which included a world championship in 1986. Hernandez retired after the 1990 season, but returned to the Mets as a broadcaster in 2006 and remains in the booth today.
