Seat on the Korner: Tommy Pham

We select the star of the game and virtually invite him to a Seat on the Korner, just as Ralph Kiner used to do for his studio postgame show on WOR-channel 9 broadcasts in the early decades of the Mets.

Today's Seat on the Korner belongs to former Met Tommy Pham who was 3 for 5, lacking only a triple for the cycle, he also threw out Jeff McNeil at second base.

Need to Know

  • Tonight was the start of the Mets penultimate homestand, a seven-game stand against Arizona (four games) and Cincinnati (three games).

  • The Mets held a special pregame ceremony to honor the memory and victims of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and from injuries sustained in responding to the crisis...Mike Piazza, whose game- winning home run against the Braves lifted the spirits of New York when baseball resumed after the 9/11 attack, was part of the program.

  • The New York Mets wore first responder caps during the game...Caps from the FDNY, NYPD, Port Authority Police Department, Department of Sanitation and Department of Correction were all represented to commemorate their bravery and sacrifice.

  • With the loss tonight the Mets are now 35-34 at Citi Field in 2023...This compares to a 30-44 record on the road.

Turning Point

The turning point of the game was of course when Buck first called on Trevor Gott to protect a 1 run lead, and then Drew Smith to keep the game tied at 3. Both failed.
