2013 Jason Bay, who mutually agreed to terminate his contract with the Mets in November after three years of futility in New York, clouts a two-run homer in his first at-bat of spring training in the Mariners' 8-6 exhibition victory over the Padres. The likable, but oft-injured outfielder signed with Seattle in the offseason for $1 million, a far cry from the four-year, $66-million free-agent deal he inked when he left Boston for the Big Apple in 2009.
2016 At a news conference at Borough Hall in Queens, the Mets announce the team will host an LGBT Pride Night on August 13 at Citi Field, featuring discounted seating for the game against the Padres and a free postgame concert. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold at Mets.com/pride for the event, which is expected to attract more than 5,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans, will benefit the LGBT Network, a non-profit organization, and its Safe Schools Initiative working to stop bullying in Long Island and Queens.
