Mets Trivia Of The Day: February 29, 2020

Happy Leap Day, everybody.

I have a tough one for you today.

QUESTION: The 1972 Mets were the first modern-era team to NOT have any player do what?

ANSWER:  Get 100 base hits as a batter.

Thanks to a rash of injuries and a six games lost to an owners’ lockout, Tommie Agee led the team with 96 base hits. Never before (since 1900) did a team not have any players with at least 100 hits.
