A former All-star outfielder Kevin Bass was nearing the end of his career when the Mets acquired him from the San Francisco Giants on August 8, 1992. He made his Met debut the same day and went 1-3 with an RBI. Bass would finish out the season serving primarily as a fourth outfielder. He put up decent if unspectacular numbers. In 46 games, he hit .270 with 2 home runs and 9 RBIs.
Following the season, the Mets let him walk as a free agent and he signed with the Houston Astros.
Though Bass’ brief tenure with the Mets was unspectacular he is remembered fondly by Met fans. In 1986 as a member of the Houston Astros Kevin Bass struck out against Jesse Orosco to end game six of the NLCS which clinched the pennant for the Mets.
While with the Mets Bass wore number 21.
