Terrence Long – His New York Mets Career 1999

terrence-longA former first round draft pick, Terrence Long was one of the Mets top outfield prospects when he made his debut on April 14, 1999 as pinch hitter for Turk Wendell, for the record he struck out.  He made another pinch-hitting appearance the next day, once again striking out.  Long would make one more appearance as a pinch hitter on May 11, he didn’t strike out but it would have been better if he did as he hit into a 6-4-3 double play.

Long was sent back down to the minors where he was playing for the Norfolk Tides when the Mets included him in a trade with the Oakland A’s in exchange for pitcher Kenny Rogers.

While with the Mets Long wore number 26.

Terrence Long also played for the following teams:
Oakland A’s – 2000-2003
San Diego Padres – 2004
Kansas City Royals – 2005
New York Yankees – 2006
