Keith Hernandez Mets Hall of Fame Plaque
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 1999. He has been a part of the SNY broadcast teams, alongside Gary Cohen and Ron Darling, since its inception in 2006.
