Catching up with Kevin McReynolds

Kevin McReynolds figured prominently in the New York Mets' quest for the National League pennant in 1988. The 28-year-old left fielder was in his second season with the Mets after a trade in December 1986 brought him to New York in exchange for Shawn Abner, Stan Jefferson, and Kevin Mitchell. Coming to the Mets fresh off of their World Series victory, he had lofty expectations for his time in Flushing.

McReynolds made a rare appearance in New York, signing autographs at the JP Sports Hofstra Show on Saturday. He took a few minutes prior to leaving for his flight home to discuss his time with the Mets and his role on the 1988 NL East championship team.
