Dave Liddell – His New York Mets Career 1990

dave-liddellThe Mets acquired catcher Dave Liddell from the Chicago Cubs on June 30, 1986 in exchange for pitcher Ed Lynch.  After spending five seasons in the Mets minor league system Liddell finally made his Major League debut on June 3, 1990.  But just as quickly as it began it was over.  Liddell singled as a pinch hitter for Mackey Sasser in the 8th inning and caught the 9th in the Mets 8 to 3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.  It would be Liddell’s only appearance in a Major League game as he was shipped back to the minors the following day.

Liddell signed with the Cincinnati Reds as a free agent following the 1990 season.   He bounced around the minors for another two seasons before retiring following the 1992 season.   

While with the Mets Liddell wore number 36.
