However, when you look at it from a grand perspective he brought greatness to the third base position and the game of baseball. Chipper will always be apart of our collective baseball memories as Mets fans and to have watched him play so often in New York it only seemed fitting that he got the ovation that he did when he pinched hit in the 9th. And oh yeah he walked that son of a...
