The last week I've visited a few different Atlantic League venues and got to see some pretty great baseball. I've also got the chance to see some former New York Mets in action.

Here's some of the former Mets I've seen.

BUD HARRELSON - LONG ISLAND DUCKS
Mets legend, Bud Harrelson was a member of the 1969 World Championship team as a player, and the 1986 World Championship team as a coach. He played 13 seasons for the Mets and is considered one of the greatest Mets ever. He's currently part-owner of the Long Island Ducks, as well as their bench coach.

KEVIN BAEZ - LONG ISLAND DUCKS
Baez played a majority of his career in the Mets organization, including 63 games in the major leagues from 1990-93. He is currently the manager for the defending Atlantic League champion Long Island Ducks.
ROMAN CASTRO - LONG ISLAND DUCKS
Ramon Castro played for the Mets from 2005-2009 before being traded to the Chicago White Sox on May 30, 2009 for Lance Broadway. 
VICTOR DIAZ - BRIDGEPORT BLUEFISH
Diaz played for the Mets from 2004-2006. In 2005, he played 89 games for the Mets hitting .257 with 12 home runs and 37 RBI. He was traded to the Texas Rangers for Mike Nickeas in 2006. 


PRENTICE REDMAN - BRIDGEPORT BLUEFISH
Redman was a highly touted prospect for the Mets in the early 2000's. He only played 15 games in the major leagues, all with the Mets in 2003.
